Sure, but first, you can't compare Ant with InfoZip. InfoZip is easy, 
Ant not. I'm looking for a plain simply UI with only a few features, to 
enable everyone, not just developers, to replace files with only a few 
basic instructions, this, without the need to setup a build system that 
is too complicated, even for some developers.
