Should I use Maven for struts-xdoclet?

James Strachan has encouraged me to use Maven for my struts-xdoclet project. I should give Dave some credit too, as he has also suggested this through e-mail. Here's my delimma, it'll probably take me anywhere from 2-4 hours to figure it out and integrate it. Does it buy me that much functionality to make it worth it? And my biggest fear is that it seems to help you produce a "project website" - that has a Jakarta look to it. I'll end up spending hours and hours tweaking the look and feel of that sucker - which provides no real value at all. But I'll do it because that's how I am. So to answer your suggestion James, I'm afraid to integrate with Maven, as I'm scared to create too much more work for myself with my already tight deadlines. Volunteers are welcome ;-)
