Defaults to *true* for backwards compatability, isn't it?

Actually I don't think it would be a good idea to change that right
now, we know we are going to break whatever hack gets into 1.3 in Ant2
anyway. Adding a new feature in 1.3 implies that we are going to
support it in 2.x as well IMHO and this may very well not be true for
what you propose.

Given that -1 should mean "I will help to implement a better
solution", make that a -0 for now ;-). I don't know any other solution
