Is it? I didn't see any distrubted semantics there (which would require all
of what you say). Just multi threading. I defintly don't want to support
distributed (across machines) in the core. If somebody wants to build a
framework like that which uses Ant on each machine, that's great and I'd be
interested in trying to see if Ant could be compatible with such a thing,
but it's not something that I'd support in core.

Scripting was a stretch for me. MT is a further stretch for me. Both are at
the limits.... :)
