Right - clearly this is not some sneaky or underhanded thing that happened. Certainly this
is how a lot of legit things happen.

The only reason I feel it was more of a Maven sneaking in thing is that in IRC I have learned
how many active core devs really didn't want Maven in the build at a later time. I think we
just didn't really know what was happening / paid attention. I don't mean to characterize
incorrectly. If you asked me back then, I prob would not have understood the consequences
whatsoever and said, please go ahead! Patches welcome.

People's opinions have shifted though - we have more committers now - perhaps the Maven support
side is larger than the against now.

Just stating things as I roughly knew them - happy to see things cleared up, fined tuned.
