+1 too. This is a key foundation of the flexibility IMO. Trying to deliver a
build system which address everything is impossible, but it can always be a
good basis, at least to learn from. Leveraging the knowledge people have
from Ant syntax will help them to get value from the build system, even when
their problem is very specific.
