it's great to have more developers involved with WebTest!

I'm against (1), as the webtest project is already complex enough.

I think (3) is the best solution: I guess it's the place where maven  
users would first look for a maven plugin.
And it is only a link away from the main WebTest site, so I don't  
think it is 'to far away'.
