IDE/editor replacement: nope. Git/GitHub: not required, but it's becoming 
increasingly rare to find non-maven projects on GitHub (likely due to the 
automatic dependency resolution). Free: yep!

versions of such-and-such dependencies.

The standard directory layout *is* annoying at first, but you eventually become 
ONE-OF-US and learn to appreciate splitting things into separate modules and 
whatnot. It's also REALLY when you can use maven-aware tools like Sonar without 
doing much extract.
