Ahem, maybe I wasn't clear, that's what I said too.

I agree with what you say, just adding the fact that we should remember 
that many users, and many more now that also non-java developers will 
use it, want to be able to not have to install anything.

You want to see the Apache site all done in Forrest?

Then we better make it easy as just typing, and it's not my 
suggestion, I'm just forwarding.

I'm investigating about using an even smaller server, I'll let you know

Ok, keep it in mind, I think too that Ant might not be needed for the 
simple distro (ie no bot).
