I very much like Sorins and Tommy's idea, as  i know my transformation  
scenarios to work but have to spend time to develop ant build file and  
making sure the 2 are in sync.
I oxygen could (to some degree) help this process the would be highly  
appreciated and in our organization seen as a plus. its one thing to  
click a scenario together, its a whole different
ball game to write one from scratch.

just my 2 cents
