  -Myrmidon is one of the Ant 2 proposals currently in development.  You can
  -read more about the goals of Ant 2

  -Myrmidon is a general-purpose <i>task engine</i>.  It contains the basic
  -building blocks for assembling any sort of task-based tool.  Ant 2
  -is an example of such a tool, which could be assembled using the Myrmidon task
  -engine, and a library of build related tasks.
  -</p>
  -
  -<p>
  -Currently, Myrmidon is a prototype of what a task engine might look.  It
  -includes a small set of tasks and data types.  We are currently porting
  -many of the Ant 1.x tasks to the Myrmidon task engine.

  -
  -<p>Some of the differences between Ant 1.x and Myrmidon:</p>
  -
  -<ul>
  -
  -<li>
  -Groups of tasks can be assembled into self-describing <i>antlib</i> task
  -libraries.  This makes it very easy to distribute and install tasks and data-types.
  -</li>
  -
  -<li>
  -A project can import other projects, and reference their targets.
  -</li>
  -
  -<li>
  -Changes to the property model:
  -<ul>
  -    <li>Properties and data type references now share the same namespace.</li>
  -    <li>Properties are mutable.</li>
  -    <li>Properties are scoped into global, local, and parent contexts.</li>
  -    <li><code>if</code> and <code>unless</code> checks now
test the property
  -    value against <code>false</code>, in addition to testing set/not-set.</li>
  -</ul>
  -</li>
  -
  -<li>
  -Changes to task and data-type API:
  -<ul>
  -    <li>An interface based API, through which a task interacts with the
  -    task engine, and the services it provides.</li>
  -    <li>A well-defined object lifecycle.</li>
  -    <li>Polymorphic types are supported when objects are configured.</li>
  -    <li>Reference handling is handled automatically when objects are configured.</li>
  -    <li>Aspects can be used to decorate tasks, to add facilities like logging,
  -    error handling, or user preferences.</li>
  -</ul>
  -</li>
  -
  -<li>
  -A set of well-defined services and APIs have been introduced, to allow
  -tasks to do their work without depending on other tasks:
  -<ul>
  -    <li>Execute external commands.</li>
  -    <li>Execute other tasks.</li>
  -    <li>Manage ClassLoaders and Class-paths.</li>
  -    <li>Virtual file system (in progress).</li>
  -    <li>Execute Java applications (in progress).</li>
