It couldn't hurt. :-)

I have passed the contact information that Stefan Bodewig gave me to our national accounts
area and they were going to make contact. I'll follow up to see how that's going.

Would the sell of a few snazzy Ant logo embroidered shirts help convince
management?!  :)

(p.s. Where are we with that?)

This gets to my whole point. Almost every IDE offers some kind of project
capability and a way to compile that project, but (usually) only from within
the IDE itself.

I desire a stand-alone build system that is cross-platform (Win2K, Linux,
Solaris, AIX, Mac OS X at a minimum), easy to use (not all of our developers
will have time to learn anything complicated *cough*make*cough*), capable of
being run from a command-line or script.

Ant meets all these needs with style. My point was to try and find
alternatives that I could list so that my proposal to use Ant didn't look
like it was written by a founding member of the Ant fan club! :-)
