There's stuff underway in ivy to generate pom files from ivy 
descriptors; it could be the precursor to ant based release deployment. 
For those of us whose projects live mostly in the Ant space, not having 
to drop to Maven would only be a good thing. After all, if I can use 
maven for releases, why not use it from the ground up?

Nb, we have used maven1 in the past to create some of the site docs for 
smartfrog, like the change log. We also use forrest.
