It is probably true that for ant users what you suggest is more elegant.
But everybody does not use ant. More importantly, sometimes you want
to try something and you dont want to have to worry about any ant
scripts. Java and eclipse are wonderful that way. There is nothing
wrong with a little ease of use every now and then - even smart/expert
people appreciate it. The flash work flow sucks compared to Java.
Every little bit helps.
