Subject: Why use retrieve + standard ant path creation over cachepath?

In the Ivy documentation for the <ivy:cachepath> task, it suggests
*"Please prefer the use of retrieve + standard ant path creation, which
make your build more independent from ivy (once artifacts are properly
retrieved, ivy is not required any more)."*

Do most people follow this retrieve+ant practice? Cachepath worked well
for me when a module + all of it's dependencies were resolved from the
same location, but it had issues when the module was resolved from
multiple repositories.
