Ok, I got it working, sort of.  I built an antshell.bat script based on the 
bash script you wrote and it runs.  However, the only thing I can do is 
type "ant" and use the project's default target.  If I type any switches or 
targets antshell gives me "no such commands".  Would the Readline native 
library have fixed that?  It isn't much use to me if I can't define targets 
to run.

I have to say, it really is nice to have the JVM stay up and running before 
and after running ant.  It is just lightning fast!  Ant should have this 
capability by default, I think.  Any Ant developers want to adapt this to 
the standard Ant package?
