This is a completely different issue that I'm addressing independently.

<subant> is not meant to replace GUMP. Its purpose is to build projects in a
given order. It doesn't dictate the classpath used by these projects at all,
like GUMP does. Each project is on its own to configure its classpath and
everything. What it is guaranteed is that its dependencies have been built
before if is built (provided that project's build is called by a higher
level build thru <subant>. --DD

Wow! :-D

Excellent news, very nice!

This rocks, man!

Yes yes yes, I wanna use it! :-)

There is only one thing that is missing: in Gump each build needs to 
have added the dependencies to the classpath... in this case, subant 
should add them to the classpath when calling the project with "fork", 
or setting it in a reference if not, so that the subbuild can use it.

What do you think? (I'm a bit excited, treat with care ;-)
