That is very cool!

Since we're talking Groovy, I'd just like make a plug for Gradle, a fantastic build/deployment/dependency
management tool that is in many ways much nicer to work with than Maven, though it plays nicely
with Maven (for example, it can use Maven repositories). Gradle is also proven technology:
it's the build tool for the Android operating system.

No longer requires the user to have any knowledge of UIMA, cTAKES, etc.
