I prefer Matt Foemmel's more project oriented approach.
It's not at all straightforward in looking at the anakia docs
why you would use it to build nested and included build
template files for ant.  Sure, maybe you could do it, but
it would just be an implementation of this anakia stuff.

Why not build the functionality directly into ant.  That would
make it much easier to use.

There's a big difference between saying "you can do that
already" and saying "the functionality is built in and
accessible in an intuitive way".
