-1... Ant should require no more than the JDK to work. I've just brought Ant
up under MacOS X, and except for a problem with the bootstrap file (which
I'm looking into) and requiring a JAXP parser, it works like a champ. This
is the user experience that should always be there.

And, the user experience should be better than that.. Having to go grab a
parser sucked. :)
