My latest try was vindico, an ant-based gump.  I got far enough to see 
things building and so on, but not far enough to do the project.xml 
override/inheritance.  I do believe it was a viable model, the biggest 
issue being that I was still using java products to build java 
products, and Sam had warned me about these types of things.  I only 
stopped because Adam had started pushing more and more code into Gumpy, 
and I liked the idea of using non-Java to build Java.  That, and he was 
coding much more than I was :)

In short, there are a couple of gotchas with an ant-based gump, but I 
think it is completly doable.  My other ambitions with vindico were 
more what we are talking about today: doing history on all builds, 
trying to find who to blame (usually 1 side of a 2-sided interface), 
moving more toward some type of continuous integration, federation of 
gumps (so that I am only building 4 projects), etc.
