Well, we all agree that Main is still taking too many responsibilities
itself when it comes to creating a Project and starting the build -
this is one of the things where we hope to get a lot better with Ant2.

I haven't looked at the NetBeans integration stuff, but I guess you

I don't think exposing the not-so-clean API by making Main's methods
public would be the right way, either.
