Hi Jack!

Yep! One of the most important things for the usability of Antidote!

Very important

Not shure what that means

Yes, but with a medium/low priority, because this will blow up the codebase
telling my personal experience...

This has been one of the initial tasks for Antidote when it started 4 years
ago. Today I am not shure, if it is still of value, because NetBeans has an
own and excellent Ant-integration... Before we can think of that, we definatly
should provide much more functionality, that the current
NetBeans-ant-integration has ATM, what do you think?

Additionally IMHO we should just DO something for Antidote to keep up with
Ant before we make bigger plans...
