The emphasis on my person in the paragraph above stems from the fact
that my version of Ant will certainly always be newer than the one
coming with Forrest of Centipede.

No problem with providing a simple build environment for the average
user, but completely bypassing the users environemnt (and unsetting
ANT_HOME if present) is not nice.  You should at least document that
it will never use the user's "normal" version of Ant.
