Here's a suggestion for the Ant 2 requested-features.txt file:

To this item:
* Easier installation process. GUI - maybe webstart from the homepage.

  This includes asking the user whether he wants to use optional tasks
  and downloads the required libs. Automatic upgrades and so on.
Add this:

  Self-extracting jar installer: java -jar jakarta-ant-1.3-bin.jar. 
  Prompts for destination directory, extracts archive, fixes all 
  text files with fixCRLF task; on UNIX, makes scripts executable.  
  Could also modify ant scripts with the location of ANT_HOME.
