You mean you type "mvn" instead of "ant" ? I agree te keys are closer
together on my keyboard, so it could indeed be easier. Personally, I did
have a first hand experience with Maven, and I think it's horrible (you
have no clue what it is doing, error reporting is bad, and basically,
you have to think and act the tool's way).

I disagree with having two separate build systems, there's no guarantee
of equivalence.
