[forge-dev] Spring Plugin for Forge

Hey Ryan,

Copying forge-dev so everyone can give thoughts. We (I) really need to get
the website up with the tutorials so things like this are more
straightforward. Sorry!

If you use the built-in "new-plugin" command, you get the POM creation
stuff for free. I don't see a reason to duplicate that. It'll basically
just give you a java maven project, which can then be customized using the
DependencyFacet, and other facets like JavaSourceFacet.

Mostly we don't assume we need to create projects, because we just operate
on a "new-project" or any other existing project.

For examples of this, take a look at the javaee-impl/ module in the forge
core/ project on GitHub. This is a pretty comprehensive example of the
intended architecture (facets to abstract functionality away from the
project, then plugins to interact with the facets.)

Glad to see this! Looking forward to doing some spring stuff!
