The scenario is as follows:
Parent Project P
+-- Project A
`- Project B
B has a dependency on A (B requires A).
A user with an empty local repository cannot checkout the whole project and
run 'mvn eclipse:eclipse' due to unsatisfied dependencies. The build will
fail in Project B because Project A is missing from the repository.
A 'mvn install' has to be executed before (at least for Project A). But what
if the project is in a state where it doesn't compile? It's not possible in
this case for a new user to start developing with eclipse.
