Speeding up maven 3

On the maven mailing list a tip appeared to speedup maven 3.
Apparently maven spends a lot of time figuring out the dependency tree. Since maven3 this is done using a separate library, aether. For complex projects and projects which use version ranges it seems the dependency resolution can be faster by switching to a more recent release of aether. Just replace the aether libraries in /lib by the latest copies (1.13 is what I used) from maven central (http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/sonatype/aether/).
