Thanks for the work but I find ant kind of not working on windows (a lot of tasks still do
rely on cli tools) an extremely hard to read.

What about migrating to pake instead?
. based on php, should be runnable everywhere the zetac are
. cross platform
. increases interaction with the rest of the php community

You can look at
for a bootstrapping, self-updating pakefile script (of corse, based on 
JC's original ant work ;-) ). it uses the zetac for generating html docs out of .rst and for
creating zip/tgz tarballs
