[SUBMIT] _ant completion function


Here's my version of an _ant function for Ant completion support in
versions 1.3 to 1.5.

It's nearly 100% pure zsh with the exception that sed is called to strip
\r's from the output of ant -projecthelp which is a requirement when
running under Cygwin.  If anyone can tell me how to do that with within
zsh I'd appreciate it.  There's also a minor cosmetic issue in that the
default target is printed with a leading space.  The problem is I couldn't
figure out how to do a substitution while condtitionally removing a
trailing space.  Using ? or * didn't work for me to make a space optional.

So far, I've not found a build file that wasn't parsed correctly but then
I haven't done extensive testing either.

Suggested improvements
* Caching of targets on a per build file basis
* Enhance the -logger option with a menu of the standard logger classes
shipping with Ant while still allowing completion on a classname.
* A number of the options support completing on a classname.  However,
this doesn't work unless the class file is in a package under the current
directory.  It would be desirable to complete on any class in the
classpath.  Since Ant's classpath isn't exposed, the best guess would be
to use a classpath of $ANT_HOME/lib/*.jar.

Also, I should mention that Ant 1.5 ships with completion support for zsh
2.5 and up.  Someone wrote a Perl script (bin/complete-ant-cmd.pl) to
support completion for Bash.  I figured out how to get it to run from zsh
and documented it at the top of the script.  Unfortunately, this isn't
mentioned in Ant's documentation.  Although this completion support does
cache targets on a per build file basis, it's using the old completion
