Would I have to write a specific gradle file for each command line utility?
Regardless: can we discuss gradle here or does that require a post in another forum/email-list? What would extending gradle look like?

why reinvent grapes? why not extend Gradle (as thats what it sounds like you want)?

Can someone help me get started with a little groovy program that will
(1) ingest a maven pom.xml
(2) construct the dependency tree 
(3) download dependencies into the local maven repository if needed
(4) construct the class path strings that includes all the dependent jars and display this so I can use it with the java command to run the java program with this bash syntax

java -cp `getClassPath.groovy ./pom.xml` abc.def.main

This would be very handy for running command line utilities like the derby toolkit command line and the flyway command line utility.
