There's a nagging screen when importing a maven project asking for a compiler output path. This is counterintuitive, as:
1. m2 inherently has compiler output paths configured already in poms
2. This setting is set globally for all modules, which forward all Make output to this folder (individual m2 goals on projects use the m2 target output directories)
Now, I understand there are 2 styles for co-hosting IDEA-compiled and m2 compiled classes:
1. One I prefer - IDEA compiles to the same folders as m2, configured individually per-project (target by default, relative to module root)
2. Current one, whereas IDEA output is hosted separately.
The 2nd scenario is currently covered, though not the first. There should be a default setting to follow the m2 conventions, and use pom information, per-module. And have the option to override and use the single dedicated output path, as now.
