Hello everybody!
I'm currently using ant as a command-line utility and as Eclipse Plugin.
The command line version I can use is always the last one, but the integrated 
IDE version seem to be some version older. :(
Clearly the IDE's team must re-code and re-test the news in the IDE-idioms, and 
this can take time.
The same drawback affect netbeans and every one who make an ant wrapper.

Thinking in 'meta'...
Probably a standard xml ant descriptor file deployed with its ant 
implementation can help a wrapper to dynamically or statically discovers about 
ant features and exposes the ant-functionality in a wrapper-defined fashion.
If the xml file does not address other problems, ant can make available a 
public API to discover its feature in a standard mode, so I think always 
in 'XML mode'.
The plug-in capability about ant can be kept unviolated because this API can 
work together as an enhanchement more like a service. I think that a specific 
API call can analize the 'ant-environment' and produce the xml descriptor; the 
wrapper read and analize that file and the game is over.
