porting from gradle to maven would be rewriting the build system from
scratch. Assuming that we have tens and will have hundreds of packages
with gradle, in the long term it seems better to support gradle, even
in some partial form, than to rewrite build systems of hundreds of

So, you are welcome to try, but I bet you'll end up in the long line
