I find it strange there are no more mature solutions. Greebo is not 
documented, Gump is better documented, but not as decent as ANT. I 
haven`t tried ANTHILL or CruiseControl, and I don`t know if they support 
the things I need.

I only need it for all my small utility projects at home (I have a lot 
of them). I hate putting everything together making one big util library 
from it. I would like to have some control, and I would like the control 
to be easy. I have enough difficult stuff to do already.
