Quick update:
I downloaded the jigsaw stage repo and tried the build. The biggest 
issue is that it requires Ant 1.9.4 (because of the MuliRootFileSet) to 
work, but after that is set up, everything works like before. My 
IntelliJ setup needed few cosmetic changes, to update the source roots, 
but nothing out of the ordinary. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with it.
