That's great.  I just became a little cautious when I saw a bunch of
hard-coded references to the Maven style of paths.  If this stays
confined to the Maven repository, that's fine.

One thing I've always liked about Ant is that it doesn't dictate to
you any way to store your files (well, besides the ANT_HOME
directory).  This kind of thing seems to me like forcing the user into
the Maven world view.
