In my opinion, no.  If our (Apache Commons) preferred method of
building is m2, then we stick with m2.  I do understand that some
folks don't like maven, but nothing is stopping them from generating
the build files themselves for the build system of their choosing
(maven can generate ant build files).  Also, most modern IDEs can
"understand" m2 pom.xml files just fine, so the argument that "I'm not
using maven" gets a bit weaker.
