against (or should I just put -1 even thought I am not a committer?)

Why? Because I think it should be replaced with an XSLT from Ant1 to

There are some serious core changes that we are discussing and from
what I can see we will be "breaking" an Ant1 file anyway. Only
changing "some" still forces manual updates which are error prone and
will result in lots of bug traffic. An XSLT it automated so if
something is missed it can easily be fixed for all. Also, we can break
it down my task for easy division of labor.
