I couldn't agree more.  Personally, I'm satisfied with the XSLT workaround
for now, but I would like to see this handled cleanly and natively as much
as you guys would.  Hasty decisions will just cause more angst.

IMO, with the direction you're taking here, I see Ant becoming much more
convenient and powerful than Make could ever hope to be.  Good job!
