Someone wrote that the ANTLR version being dependent upon is custom, but the 
version numbering doesn't indicate anything special, so perhaps it is just a 
"pre-built" with features coming into later versions.

ibiblio.org is a large data store with a long-term noble goal of NEVER 
removing anything that has been placed there. Therefor, the general 
recommendation is to keep "temporary" artifacts on "other" repository hosts. 
Apache uses http://cvs.apache.org/repository, and all Apache committers can 
put stuff in there, and it is NOT synced out to ibiblio.org.

It is also expected that all temporary content is removed from there as those 
artifacts get released properly.

I think the general consensus is that this should be specified for each 
project, so that "no extra steps" are required to build a project after 
checkout. Normally the home dir settings are only used for "personal" things, 
like passwords to upload artifacts.
