the pom files are descriptors of the jars in the maven environment. They give a hint that
ant jars will be in the future - not right now but hopefully in a few days - be available
for Ant API developers. For instance if you develop ant custom tasks, or maybe a server application
which is using ant API to do work like copying files around - you could build your software
using maven. 

You can delete all these files, they are not needed. I might remove the md5 and sha1 files
from future distributions, they are uninteresting.
