I use IDEA as Ant's IDE; build with ant itself. At work I can build with 
IDEA, but have to do an ant run to do corner case things (javacc, rmic, 
etc). It does take a while to get used to, but is good after that.

what causes trouble in Ant's source tree are the optional tasks, because 
we dont have a simple directory/library mapping. If all source that 
depended on a specific library was in a single package, it would be easy 
to exclude that package when you dont have the JAR. As it is. 
oata.tasks.optional is trouble
