Well clearly the maintainers of the driver are much more comfortable
using ant. So your solution would have *us* relearn a new tool.

Why not use gradle as someone else suggested? Or the next new super
duper build system when it comes out?

I think our time is better spent adding features not refactoring the
build system.
