I see. As for me, I use ANT to get code from the repository,
than after editing I put it back using ANT too. It will be good
for me to filter some things I missed automaticaly (converting tabs 
to spaces or position the brackets). And definetely I can tell
you I'm not a CZAR :(((

Of course no, if you do not want such task you have right do
no have it on your computer. As far as I unerstand that's why
optional tasks exeis.If you do not use CORBA - idl compiler task 
is garbage for you, if I don't use CVS I needn't cvs task.
Only one thing I do not want is launching holy wars about 
something like that.

BUT - thank you. Now I know your opinion and I relly appreciate you.
Negative answer is answer too!
