It's been on my mind for a while that the command line isn't great ATM. 
If you're happy to be using rat that way, I'd be very interested to 
understand more about your use case :-)


1. We're pushing towards the first release of Whisker - this tool helps 
with generating composite legal documents (LICENSE and NOTICE etc) and 
verifying that the contents of a distribution (as opposed to source 
code) are accounted for licensing-wise. If this sounds like something 
that you might be interested, please jump in - we'd be very happy to 
understand more potential use cases :-)

2. If you're using a build system other than Ant or Maven, please let us 
know. We're happy to tool up other build system given active users to 
help us understand the use case :-)
