Sorry, I realized that I was conflating the distribution with working 
with the source code in this comment. Sorry for the noise. Despite the 
added complexity for finding code if you use a text editor, I'm +1 on 
this too, as well as how to resolve the classpaths.

Just to be clear on point 3:

That is just to bundle the contents of all the ant-*.jar files together 
into a single ant.jar file, right? Or are you suggesting that we release 
two packages with each release of Ant, one without the dependent 
libraries included and one with (ala velocity.jar and velocity-deps.jar)?
