Yeah, I'm perfectly satisfied with ant and with no need to mess up with 
that huge beast that maven is. I have a strong opinion on software 
tools: they don't deserve more than two hours of my time to get me 
started (take ant: download, unzip, set ANT_HOME, rock 'n roll). Maven 
took me days and still I haven't been able to build a single project, 
go figure use it for my daily work. It's probably me being limited and 
just unable to cope with it.

I knew I shouldn't have asked that question. :-)
