And plenty in Ruper too, and also with multiple protocol support...

But that's not the point. distributed repositories, license 
considerations, naming clashes between conventions, all of these and 
others clearly indicate that we need metadata, and we need it in a 
tool-agnostic way.

BTW, do you think you could invite here the Maven developers that are 
discussing now about these issues on the Maven list, so we can get an 
act together?
