Hi Stephan

If gump does go fubar then we would need to find an alternate means to supply 
build.sysclasspath to quote Ant folk
"In Ant's case        Gump set's Ant's build.sysclasspath to only and manages 
the system classpath"

the fact that it builds APR (which is a dependency of Apache HTTPD) seems to 
justify its existence

this little snippet from the gump website gives me the willies
It is written in Python 
*which means we would need more than a passing familiarity with makefiles, gcc 
and ld *
2 years ago i worked at a site which did alot of python  programming and the 
'object' file was compiled as pyc
(python component)
i remember python version checking was non-existent and if you had the wrong 
version of pyc on your path
it would take you days before you would be able to  
find the correct version source
find the gcc compiler that would compile it
link it to correct pyc format
 and then stick it on your path

Am i the only advocate to converting gump to java?
