Yes, but a very very simple management, like it's done in many open source
projects like:
FreeMarker:
http://freemarker.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/freemarker/trunk/freemarker/build.xml
or even better
Click Frameowrk:
http://click.sourceforge.net/docs/building.html#ant-targets
(see get-deps task)

I'm aware of Ivy(and used it) but I think it's an overkill for most simple
projects(and one could have used Maven as well), and for that very simple
reason ANT would just do it.

I also don't think this would be any duplication with IVY since Ivy would
handle complex situations. 

For very simple projects however were only a few jars are present, the tasks I
descibed would solve the problems and would pose no learning barrier to the
(new)users (exactly the main argument of ANT over maven).

Thank you,

Gustav.
