I've looked at CruiseControl but not actually used it. I think that a  
build server would be a better option than using some Ant Contrib  
tasks to make Ant do things it wasn't really created for. However, it  
seems to be a somewhat tedious process at my current workplace to  
introduce new products such as CruiseControl. Secondly, I'd like to  
first create a simple demonstration of how the build system could  
work. Thirdly, even though I haven't looked that much in CruiseControl  
or other build servers, I don't see how they could see if the resolved  
"latest.integration" dependencies have changed since the previous  
build, unless someone has written a plugin or something equivalent  
especially for Ivy. I'm interested if there are such plugins for any  
build servers.
