There are some reasons, that Antidote isn't ready, yet. One is, that it
seems, that the original developer Simeon Fitch has left us. Another reason
is that there has been a big discurrion regarding Ant 2.0 - The Ant API will
be incompatible to 1.x, so...

There are 2 more or less active Antidote committers: Nick Davis and I. If
you want to contribute: Feel free to. IMO there are just 10% needed to make
Antidote ready for a 1.0 version to run with Ant 1.4.
