Maven Integration: "Create temporary modules" by default ?

Maven Integration -> Import. The default option is "Create temporary modules" which I guess has it's own reasoning but in my case it wasn't right - we had Facets auto-detected and message displayed every time the project was reopened (http://www.intellij.net/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=268967&tstart=0) since by default no *.iml files were created and no Facets data was stored on the disk. And I had no clue about this option (create or not IDEA module files) until asked in the forum. So how about switching the default to "Create regular IDEA modules" ?

Hi Evgeny,

I also suffered from a similar problem, and created an issue for it:

http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-14566

I also had no idea what the consequences of this option were, and I found it out the hard way (by having my settings lost every restart).

Yeah .. Not creating an *.iml files by default (when creating a project from pom.xml) where lot's of useful information is kept is something unusual. Even it it has it's own reasoning ..
