you'd have fun bootstrapping it without a <jsc> task.

too late:

its use of GPL kind of cripples it; you wont see an MS supported add in for
vs-net for example. Adoption of nant is actually fairly low; partly because
everyone in .net land currently has a choice of one IDE, and a good one a
that. Not as good as intellij for refactoring, but ok for other things.
