If you look in ide/flashbuilder build.xml and
makeApacheFlexForFlashBuilder.sh you will find code that is doing this for
flashbuilder.  Sounds like we need something similar.

I've been sitting on code that finishes the support for env.properties.  I
think the build system would be a good candidate for this rather than
environment variables.

I'd prefer if we could kick off a build every time someone checks
something in.  I'm not sure how it worked but our build system had some
smarts so if there were several checkins in a relatively short time they
just triggered one build.

Sounds good for now.

I'm pretty sure Alex removed the antcontrib requirements in mustella last
week so I don't think there are any remaining dependencies on it now.

Until we get the kinks in the build system worked out I think the broken
build mail should just go to a select few because these emails get
annoying especially if they're noise.
