Not that I have any strong opinions on Maven vs Gradle, but aren’t you conflating build
system with Configuration provider?  I don’t see how the presence of a GroovyConfiguration
provider has any influence on whether Gradle, Maven, or Ant should be used for the build system.

if Ivy was already being used then it would be more likely to be the build tool of choice.
 However Gradle is attractive as it uses Groovy and since Dennis donated a Groovy Configuration,
that might make testing easier.
