Subject [Ant Wiki] Update of "AntWeaknessesAndProblems" by antoine

Dear Wiki user,

The "AntWeaknessesAndProblems" page has been changed by antoine:

   * Better model of state. Ant's write-once model of properties is ideal for a build process
in which outer build files can control inner builds. But it does not work when state is really
something that is associated with individual jobs going through the pipeline.
  
  Accordingly, we do not encourage people to try and use ant as a workflow engine. Ant can
be used as an execution tool to perform work in the context of a workflow engine, but it is
very dangerous and unwise to use it as a workflow engine. It may work at first, but you will
soon discover its limitations.
