Haha, I do understand, really I do.

<philosphizing>The larger picture though is that I work on a dozen or so 
open source projects and I find it insanely difficult to learn new 
builds every time. Maven standardizes all that. So if a project is 
configured correctly I can get it going within a minute. I can do 
releases with just a few commands I already know. As can other people. I 
don't dispute that Ant has its advantages. Its just that on average, it 
doesn't pay for me to use Ant :-)</philosophizing>

Well how about I whip something up for 0.4 and we can evaluate things 
from there? You never know, you might like it ;-)
