Or Centipede (it's still proposed, isn't it?)

Nobody said Ant wasn't capable doing so

What you mean with generic targets? The Maven reactor?

No, no, reports and document generation in Maven suck from our POV as
they are using different build tools (Anakia vs. Forrest) and DTDs.

Just:
  - simpler build scripts (because of cents/antlibs/plugins)
    ATM we have 1500+ line spread into 14 differet files included by
    XML-Entity definitions
  - deployment of created stuff like jars to repositories for other to
    be used
  - snapshot dependancy resolution (which we have used alot in the past)
  - ease of modularisation capabilities
