My thoughts here are primarily for when I am using Ant in a somewhat
"interactive" manner. I use Ant to do everything (make sure everything is built
and then run tests) during development. Since the JUnit UI nicely presents any
errors or failures, it would be nice for it to "pop up" for the tests.

Now, during an automated build process, I completely agree with you. To me the
"gui" approach should be optional (and not default).

That's my 2 cents.
