Actually, $HOME/.antrc, $HOME/.ant/ant.conf, and
/etc/ant.conf are all detected and sourced by the ant
shell script, and they can do a lot for you, but all
they can really do is set properties.  This is good,
but a facility to execute buildfile-based tasks, while
admittedly somewhat dangerous, would be helpful IMO.
