 From the IvyRoundUp documentation:
Athough named the "builder" resolver, the only build operations  
currently supported are extracting files from archives, packaging  
files into archives, and moving and copying files. In the future more  
general build operations may be supported, once appropriate security  
controls are in place.

So I would say that it is *packaging* modules into an Ivy publishable  
structure. A packaging process that can, for some module just do some  
copy, jar and unjar, and for others some possible call to javac.

Then I am in favor of renaming it PackagerResolver.
