These limitations on Ant (and any other scripts) can *always* be
circumvented.  All you need to do is make the thing think it's local.

The Windows solution is Samba (and/or LDAP/Active Directory).

The posix solutions are NFS, LDAP, VLANs, virtual machines/storage and
some clever symbolic links.  Often with various types of NAS or SAN kit.

The OS X solution is Samba, but renamed/rebranded to something more
fitting the Apple mythos (yes, I meant mythos - they certainly see
themselves as beyond us mere mortals, but anyway).  That's what those
Airport Time Capsules are; a wireless connection with a Samba server
running in firmware which enables you to see the remote volume as
"local" to your system.
