Well this is only if you need to build xwiki from sources and honestly installing maven is so easy (takes exactly 1 minute last time I timed it!) that I can't see this as a real blocker :)

Note that maven3 is much better than the 2 and a lot faster so you'll benefit ;)

Thanks for your feedback though.
