Not sure who "the others" may be.

As for Ant, I don't expect it to move away from its own classes.
Creating jars is a core requirement for a build tool for Java and the
Ant community probably won't want to depend on an external library to
do that (I know that I don't).

As for Hadoop, yes, they probably can and should - it will be better
than depending on Ant just for the compression libraries.  I intend to
add Javadocs to Ant's classes pointing to commons-compress as the
preferred alternative once we have a release over here.
