I do not see why we need to support this kind of thing.
NO-one asks the javac compiler to be able to compile code inside your
Word document. If you have ANT inside some other markup, use an XSLT or
other transformer to extract it and put it in a place consumable by ANT.

ANT does not need to be the do all for everything.
