[groovy-user] Considering renaming some GMavenPlus goals

addTestSources -> testAddSources
addTestStubSources -> testAddStubSources
removeTestStubs -> testRemoveStubs
Much as I despise inconsistency, part of me is hesitant to make this change, since it'd mean folks would have to edit their pom after upgrading to get things working again (albeit a small edit). The only other option I could think of is to extend each mojo using the alternate goal name, which would do nothing but call the parent. The downside is, this would appear to the user as a clone (but deprecated in the Maven site), and not an alias. I'm pretty sure Maven has no concept of aliased goals.
I opened a Jira to collect feedback and document the decision (http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GMAVENPLUS-33). I'd appreciate your opinion (even if you don't use GMavenPlus).
