Ant should only be used to build Java projects by people familiar with
Java?  That doesn't make sense.  Ant should be able to be used for a
variety of projects without knowing or caring what language it is written 
in.  The user interface for ant is an XML DTD and a set of tasks, neither 
of which should require Java knowledge.

That said, I agree that gripers should be asked to contribute in whatever
ways they can.
