Does this really matter? How often during development of a typical  
webapplication do you invoke your build system? I don't know about  
you but for me, using maven in a project does not mean i type "mvn  
clean install" from the project root every 2 minutes. I'll invoke it  
to regenerate the eclipse project files, i'll invoke it each time i  
need to deliver a new EAR for testing and a few times in between to  
regenerate hibernate descriptors through xdoclet. That's *it*,  
everything else is pretty much IDE driven.

So frankly if you're suggesting me an alternative build system that  
does less http requests, has better logging output or compiles my  
code 50% faster then i can't honestly say i'm interested as it's not  
at all what having a standardized build system is all about.
