> Currently, if you wish to generate a project from an archetype that is held in an authenticated
repository, you have to ensure that the server holding the artefact has an id in the format
<id>[archetypeArtifactId]-repo</id> (reference: http://maven.apache.org/archetype/maven-archetype-plugin/faq.html).
> This means that if you have half-a-dozen different archetypes in your authenticated repository,
you have to have half-a-dozen servers defined in your settings.xml that differ only in their
id.
> Instead, it would make more sense if it was possible to supply the server id as an optional
parameter, e.g. -DServerId=banana (with associated entry in the archetype-catalog). This could
default to [archetypeArtifactId]-repo if not supplied for backward compatibility. 
> That way, the settings.xml file will not fill up with duplicate <server> entries,
all of which need modifying each and every time the password is changed.
