Apologies. No disrespect intended.

Well…I’m not sure I agree that it’s deeper than it needs to be.
I’ve been building toolchains for ages: make, ant, bash, perl,
ruby, python, sbt, etc. etc. etc.

I settled on Gradle because of the advantages I outlined in that
posting: it’s significantly better than ant for dealing with Maven and
for extensibility; it’s cross platform (unlike bash); it’s relatively
easy to install on most platforms (unlike make, perl, etc.); and it
transparently deals with a whole lot of the backend infrastructure.
