It would be *really* great in having Gump use Maven directly for builds.
Currently a refactoring of Gump made in Python is almost ready and works 
like a charm, so help there is appreciated.

In any case, here are the major issues to be solved:

1 - Maven needs to be given the jars by Gump and not download them
2 - Gump needs to understand the Maven descriptor

That's all IIUC.

If you are knowledgeable of Maven and want to help, pop into and we'll see that your efforts can be made to 
good use :-)
