Thanks Andrey (on behalf of a wide group of people who worked hard to
make it happen).

Yes, we had a brief encounter with the cpptask and we were using it for
a while in our regular builds.  The cpptask appears to be very powerful
and I probably didn't do it any justice by having a quite large unwieldy
script to cover a number of platforms.

In the end we decided to go with a 'conventional' native code tool set
for the native source, and 'conventional' Java code tools for the Java
source.  People just felt more comfortable with that.

Do you think we are missing out on something ;-) ?
