What's the status on a Maven 2 Plugin for WebTest?  Did someone create one? 
Is it available for use?  I'm using the following setup and it works, but
it'd be nice to have less configuration code:

                        <taskdef resource="webtest_base_relaxed.taskdef">
                            <classpath refid="maven.test.classpath"/>
                        <mkdir dir="target/webtest-data"/>
                        <!-- Delete old results file if it exists -->
                        <!-- This is so the default will be used if no test
case is specified -->
                        <property name="test" value="run-all-tests"/>
                        <echo level="info">Testing
'${project.build.finalName}' with locale '${user.language}'</echo>
                        <ant antfile="src/test/resources/web-tests.xml"
                            <property name="user.language"
                            <property name="webapp.name"
                            <property name="host" value="${cargo.host}"/>
                            <property name="port" value="${cargo.port}"/>
