I agree the first time developer experience is quite a pain right now.
Unfortunately that's become the nature of the beast: maven makes it easy
to depend on other stuff and for that to "magically" come down .. and if
its only just one more from some stage, its not bad. When its so many
new little pieces its a PITA. 

The only thing I can think of is to jar up someone's maven repo and put
it up for download somewhere and say "if u want a quick start, drop this
in your home directory before you say 'maven'".
