Better maven-scala-plugin support (please automatically recognize /src/main/scala and /src/test/scala)

I'm importing a Maven project that contains a mix of Scala and Java code.

The pom.xml specifies the maven-scala-plugin, and the project layout has "/src/main/scala" and "/src/test/scala" directories.
It would be nice if IDEA could pick this up, and automatically mark these directories as "sources" and "test sources" respectively.

At the moment I have to do this manually for one module after another.
This is annoying, and a good example of something that should be picked up and automatically configured out-of-the-box.
Another nice feature would be configure the facet with the scala-compiler and scala-libary JAR dependencies distributed through maven dependencies.

Is something like this planned already? If not, should I create a YouTrack ticket for IDEA, or for the Scala plugin?

Better if you'll create a ticket. Main work now is on code insight. So this fixes will not be soon.

Best regards,

I've been using the following with success... YMMV
