I disagree.

I have all the build,init,dist,clean targets in common files.
I can create a new project build file in under fives minutes by  filling 
in the blanks.

If you want a better solution I would suggest something that 
generated the build files for you. You give a list of projects and the 
their packages and it builds the files for you. That way no problems 
with target duplication.

The simpler the solution is the better and at the moment I think ant 
has not got too complex for it to remain useful.

But thats just my 0.02c ($NZ which is not really worth much.)
