This, especially the "keep ant running" part, sounds quite a lot like 
the CruiseControl project, and there's discussion happening on that
mailing list about the status and extensions to the mbean stuff.
Peter Mei just posted a good-sized patch with 2 new MBeans.  Nice stuff,
and I see this discussion and that project converging.  Nothing about
it on the project web site yet, but lots of recent messages on the
dev mailing list. http://cruisecontrol.sourceforge.net/

Regarding using ant to control MBeans (as an MBean management tool via
an appropriate Protocol Adaptor), that's a different but also useful
and interesting direction to go, especially as app servers move towards
being managed via JMX.
