Knowing nothing about the mahout build script(s), I think that having 
both ant and maven scripts might prove to be problematic. However 
keeping one module(taste) in ant will work. As a side note, we have 
discussed this same thing in Hadoop and we opted for ant+ivy. The build 
process is very complex for Hadoop, and there are some things that 
simply cannot be done with maven. ant+ivy works pretty well for us and 
we can generate pom files for deployment.
