This is the depressing part from your feature list:

    N.B: Comments are currently ignored, and will not be imported.

One of the things I *despise* about GUI's that work on build.xml files is
that they mangle the aesthetics.  Eventually they'll improve just like IDE's
that do automatic Java formatting, but having a tool nuke my very valuable
comments means its a tool I would not use or recommend.

I know its a hard problem to solve though.

Also, I don't want a tool automatically laying out the XML - I like my
attributes lined up and in a specific order. How does is this handled?

But, not to discourage you - I'm all for these types of tools.  Keep up the
good work.  But, why did you not work on Antidote instead?  What does your
tool do that Antidote does not?

    Erik
