It is my preference to actually remove the scripts all together. That's what
I've done in the projects that I'm involved with. As a developer I don't
think it is that complicated an endeavor to install Ant and the optional
JAR. I would actually prefer if no JAR files are kept in CVS but I just left
them in there to make the transition as easy as possible.

I am +1 on removing the scripts completely.
