Grails 1.x to add Maven 2 plugin support

From an InfoQ interview with Grails project lead Graeme Rocher discussing the recent release of Grails 1.0 and its future:

In addition, we plan to include Maven 2 support out of the box with Grails through a Maven 2 plug-in that hooks Grails into the Maven life cycle. Remember Grails is not just a web framework, but a software stack which aims to solve every part of the software life cycle from the build system to the ORM layer.
For those of use already using maven2 this is pretty good news. Not that there weren't ways to get around it, but it will be nice to have maven2 support out of the box.
