I am nervous about this change for multiple reasons:

     - I read that JIRA and I don't understand why Ivy jar is being used 
to call into Ant's Main class.
     - The JIRA doesn't provide any context nor did I find (in my 
limited search) that we support that use case.
     - The change being proposed involves a classloader (hierarchy) 
change which is what makes me nervous, since without knowing more on 
what we are trying to achieve here and why, it's difficult to say 
whatelse it might impact.
     - It also brings in additional deps and again comes back to the 
original question about what use case we are trying to support.

IMO, this is something that we can avoid changing.
