In testing the jcasgen plugin, it seems to me that basic tests are to run this
plugin in various maven build scenarios to see if it produces the right things
(or at least doesn't crash).
The m2e integration test simulates running a special maven build that Eclipse
developers use, when developing the Eclipse platform, as I understand it (please
correct as needed).  Since the vast majority of our users are not in the world
of Eclipse developers, perhaps that's not so important.

And it also seems unlikely that that one form of test would fail while the
others, which also run the jcasgen plugin in some different scenarios, would
