Date Wed, 18 Nov 2009 20:10:55 GMT
Deprecate fully qualified pathnames in system path

                 Key: MNG-4456
             Project: Maven 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
         Environment: Any.
            Reporter: Jim Showalter
            Priority: Minor

That way at least users are warned when they're doing something dumb, and if they change to
the variable-based form, they stand a fighting chance of having portable builds.
