I'm starting to do this work as of now. I don't have much time at 
present so I'll do it in a branch (called ivyBuild) since I don't want 
to stop others working if I get called away. Of course this also means 
that others have the opportunity to play before we move it to trunk.

It would be really helpful if commits can be made to this branch as 
well, but this is certainly not a requirement unless they affect the 
build system.
