If I remember correctly (it was a long time ago) it used to. There used 
to be a project called Centipede that built Ant scripts into something 
called "cents", which were attempts to capture best practices for 
various parts of builds. It eventually died, I think when Maven started 
taking off. It seemed to suffer from being part of a grander vision, 
called Krysalis, that dragged all resources away in different 
directions. That is my take as an outsider, anyway. I was never part of 
the project.

You can still see the remnants of it on Sourceforge[1] and a home page[2].
