A strong -1 on this: Cocoon is distributed as source only, and all users 
have to build their own binaries. If we remove Ant from the distro, 
we'll loose lots and lots of users that won't know how to install Ant, 
set the necessary enviroment variables and all that stuff.

And there aren't that much Ant releases, so upgrading it isn't really it 
a pain.
