What methods are missing that Hibernate actually uses ?

What is wrong with using ant ? It is simple and it works. How does
maven improve this ?

I would need to be convinced.

There is a very good reason for this. All of the various versions of
the driver use common routines to do the heavy lifting. This
guarantees that regardless of which version you are using it will be
well tested as the code path is more or less the same.
