> Currently we're using ant for our setup, and our setup can break every time that the
Android SDK updates and change its build.xml.  However, the Android Team has created Gradle
to be more robust such that it doesn't have the same problems as ant-based scripts.
> This also has the advantage of using Android Studio for development instead of Eclipse,
and the ability for us to bundle resources, which is something we haven't been able to do
before.
> Moving to Gradle has numerous advantages, but will break scripts, so this is to be moved
in the post-3.0 timeframe.
