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.
