Anyone who uses GPL license can not use or link to Ant. This has been
discussed before and it is a deliberate limitation of the GPL. FSF does not
want people to link to projects like Ant because they are not copylefted.
So anyone who tries to release something that links with ant and is GPL is
breaking the law and undermining the integrity of GPL (and going against
the wishes of people who wrote the GPL)
