I don't adhere to the UNIX philosophy that a tool should produce no
output if it has nothing interesting to report. A tool such as Ant
should definitely report what it is doing.

That said, there is a potential for using less screen real estate.
I would see that as an improvement. It may be a matter of taste.

I regard the Knoppix boot screen as formally perfect for terminals.

Windows Powershell is very nice, too.

In addition, accomodating progressbars would be nice.
