Lack of first class support for several popular altJVMs

Gradle offers first class support for Groovy and Scala, including source sets for src/(main|test)/groovy and src/(main|test)/scala. However, other propular altJVMs such as Clojure, JRuby, and Jython are neglected. The existing plugins for these don’t even offer basic bytecode compilation. The Gradle community plugins repository often has useless or NO results for these languages. The situation is even worse for the more obscure altJVMs like ABCL, Kawa, and Frege.

Could we please improve the altJVM situation with Gradle? I’d prefer not to use Leiningen, Rake, or Invoke, but without proper Gradle plugins, those build tools are my only options.

+1, especially for Clojure.
