Not needed to build, only to run the SCM stuff. I'm already working with 
stuff from many places, which is the main reason my gump projects are so 
unreliable (that and the XmlBeans willingness to remove attributes from 
shipping tasks, but the forthcoming <hasMethod> condition will deal with 

<project name="sftasks"

One thing we do have to have is ant task tests in maven, which means 
that the ant team has to put the ant-testutils.jar up on the repository, 
and work out how to run those tests under m2
