I did. :) It was a ton of work and especially getting the 
maven-ant-tasks to work was a nightmare!

All those patches were attached to a jira issue, and the issue was open 
for a while, with people asking for published maven artifacts.

Maven support.

So can you explain what the problem with the maven support is?  Isn't it 
enough to just call the ant target and copying the generated files 
somewhere?  When I did releases I never thought it made the release any 
harder.  Just two additional easy steps.

IMO. To my knowledge, the majority of core developers do not want maven in the build and/or
frown on dealing with Maven. We could always have a little vote to gauge numbers - I just
have not wanted to rush to another vote thread myself ;) Users are important too - but they
don't get official votes - it's up to each of us to consider the User feelings/vote in our
opinions/votes as we see fit IMO.
