Ant is a DSL, isn't it?

The easiest thing would be a re-implementation of Ant in Common Lisp,
we'd get real macros and a time-tested "scripting" language for free.
and we could get rid of XML:

(project :name "Ant" :default "echo"
  (target :name "echo"
    (echo :message "Hello World")))

Tasks would be functions or macros.
