many people are scared by maven. myself included after my previous
"fun" with getting lift working.

is there a way to get a self contained "hello world" zip up on github
if it is not already there? afaiu maven also allows for local caches,
could that that be placed in the zip, or is it simply too big?

i think that might scare people much less than pasting the very opaque
four liner which asks questions i do not know the answer to :)
