What is known as Magic, an Ant 1.6 extension system with a strong project 
model similar to Maven, generates the current Gump XML from the project 
definition. Currently, this generation has to be run whenever the model 
changes (which sometimes is forgotten), instead of just handing Gump the 
model "on demand".

What would be really cool, is that Gump could query each module for the meta 
data somehow, so that in case of Magicthe 'intermediary' step of creating the 
xml of today could be skipped. That would also mean that the current xml, new 
DB way, Magic, Maven and possibly other ways can co-exist.
In effect, it could be a 'pre-stage' to the 'build-stage' and that a DB 
connection is handed over to some generator/updater.
