Allow to configure array-typed plugin parameters from expressions yielding collections and
vice versa
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MNG-5012
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-5012
             Project: Maven 2 & 3
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Plugins and Lifecycle
    Affects Versions: 3.0.2
            Reporter: Benjamin Bentmann
            Priority: Minor


The distinction between arrays and collections is often times more a low-tech thingy than
anything else, conceptually, both types are useful to hold zero or more items. As such it
would be nice if plugin authors can freely choose which type works best for their plugin parameters.
E.g. many Maven APIs provide collections yet arrays currently render the nicer plugin docs
(component type mentioned). Currently, this is not possible:
{code:java}
/** @parameter default-value="${project.compileSourceRoots}" */
String[] sourceRoots;
{code}
