I'd say the following 3 benefits were totally worth the switch:
   * standardization of build system
   * standardization of dependency management (for both upstream and
downstream projects)
   * standardization of IDE project imports

Of course, all of the above is theoretically possible with
Ant/Ivy, but it takes so much pain and discipline that
I haven't seen materialize in practical terms.

Thanks,
Roman.
