The entire world doesn't revolve around Java - and there are many users of 
Ant (myself included) who use it very successfully for building non-java 

Currently Ant is a superb tool for automating software builds as well as 
deployment and intranet documentation. This is in very large part due to 
it's ability to handle more than just "Pure Java".

I for one would be hugely in favour of some kind of "generic" compiler task 
that can be configured (say through an external property file) for almost 
any compiler at all. Unfortunately, my own Java skills aren't up to writing 
such a task so I've kept quiet.
