Subject:   Oh Those Crazy Makefiles

Yes, the syntax of Makefiles was just 'horrible'. Having "target: dependsOn1 dependsOn2 dependsOn3", followed by a list of commands to build the target was just crazy. Having to write XML by hand is much saner. And now it sounds like I get to write my own XSLT and XML and Jelly. And once I've learned all those and got that all up and working, I can code in that language I'm supposed to be working in.. ..now what was it again anyway?
