I'm not an Ant developer (just a user when building Tomcat) so my vote
doesn't really mean anything ... but please do not do this!

We already know that 2.0 will likely (hah -- assume it's an ironclad
certainty :-) break existing build files.  Given that, would it be such
tremendous problem to let current build files work through the 1.x
That way, we will only have one more MUST change instead of two.
