Well, Krysalis Centipede downloads and installs automatically external tasks
and targets to be used in your build file using JJAR and Ant itself,   you
just need to specify the tool's name.

The Jakarta POI site is using it, and I'm struggling to get a release out
ASAP, given the reduced time I have (yes, I'm getting married :-D )

And yes, there is a link already (BTW, I've put the new cool Ant logo on the
krysalis page) :-)

You can subscribe to the announcement list of krysalis and know when it's
coming out.
