Wow, so having Maven releases is why we take 6-10 months to release?  Give me a break.  The
only thing that is slower (arguably) is the building of the release itself.   We have had
Maven support for a long time and it has never been brought up until you did that it was the
cause.  The cause is, was and always will be that we innovate at a pretty rapid pace and always
have the mindset to get "just one more" set of features/fixes into the next release.
