The problem is duplication of information (which is *always* a bad
thing) - you need to maintain classpaths for both eclipse and ant

That is, once you add a library to the eclipse classpath of a project,
you need to do the same for ant (and vice versa). That is a very
mechanical job and certainly reasonable to automate, isn't it?
