This would be likely to cause conflicts for the Maven process as it  
executes, and the format of the local and remote repositories are  

While it's not ideal, you are best to utilise the purge features of  
both Continuum and Archiva to keep the local and snapshot repos trim  
so that duplication is at a minimum.

Hopefully future versions of Maven will better support this within the  
local repository (I have a proposal prepared for this already).
