I'm happy - compress is a bad name for the js/css compressor that's
there already -I propose to change it to ant-minify.  As this seems to
be what these kind of tools are actually called.

Is anyone else interested in supporting this antlib?  I'm quite keen
for it to graduate as it's in production use at work so getting more
than one committer looking after it would be of benefit for us.
