Maven 2: Project Nesting and Eclipse

I'm on chapter 3 of the Maven 2 "Better Builds with Maven" free PDF book, and the downloaded project contains nested projects.

I ran "mvn eclipse:eclipse" on the parent project, but when I open it in Eclipse, it only opens the (lowest) child projects, presumably because Eclipse doesn't like overlapping project directories.

Can someone offer some guidance as to how to work with this Maven sample project in Eclipse, that is specifically, how to get the individual parent/child modules/projects to play well with each other?

Thanks,
Jamie

I found a similar post here, but I think things may have changed, as I think Eclipse >= 3.2M5 supports project nesting, but then I think there are problems with subclipse.

I'd really like to be able to use Maven, Eclipse, and Subclipse on the same project. Is that so weird? ;-)

Thanks,
Jamie

P.S.: Side (and OT) question: Is my build of Eclipse >= 3.2M5?
Version: 3.2.0

So did you ever figure out how to set things up in Eclipse 3.2 correctly for a maven multi-project build? I am trying to get the same thing working.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
