I need an initial checkout to do updates in the future. Which, yes, I
could do manually I'm sure. But I think I may get stuck if we ever
make changes to the build configuration itself - those files (or at
least some of them) are read before ant does the update, therefore I'd
have to run the build process twice - the first build would have the
pre-update configuration, a second would be required to pull in the
new config.

The more I'm talking it out here, the more I'm thinking I should write
a script to perform the update, then kick off ant as the second step
in the process, as opposed to rolling it all into one.
