I'm working with the release/build engineer who has an existing PDE
Build-based build working, and it uses significant custom Ant scripts to
perform additional steps in front of and beyond PDE Build. After
evaluating the choices, it's likely we'll also need additional steps
beyond Tycho, so we'll probably go that route. As much as I'd like to be
"clean" (IOW, extend the pom generator to accommodate our needs), there
isn't time budget for it, unfortunately. It's too bad, because we don't
really need to customize the plugin or feature poms, just the
master/parent. I guess that's a good thing though, because maintaining
100+ individual poms would probably be a nightmare.

Thanks for the insight anyway,
