Is this documented someplace?   I went thought most of the "mini guides" on 
the maven website and didn't see anything which is why I raised the concern.   
I'd rather not rely on undocumented behavior that just happens to do what we 
want.   Then again, much of maven's behavior falls into that category.  :-(    
(honestly, I LIKE maven, but sometimes, all you can do is just shake your 
head and wonder.....)

SNAPSHOT's are special cases as you need to explicitly enable them.  My 
understanding is the -SNAPHOST tail is treated completely special so that 
they can be completely turned off, the release plugin can "flag" them, etc...

Ok, how about 0.9-incubating-M1?  :-)
