I agree with this, Ant does seem faster. I think this might be because
Ant doesn't need to start a new copy of Java for every file
compiled... However, Ant doesn't seem to understand dependencies
between Java files, so you may not always see errors, when deleting a
public method you thought was unused, for instance. At least, thats my
experience, what should happen in theory might be different.
