Of course you are right (as always :-)). I'd do the same, beeing the
"build-master" of a subproject ATM... Afterall the I still believe
acceptance for Ant 2, IMHO, would be bigger, if the buildfiles and the
task-API would be similar to the current one.

Ok: I do very much trust in this community, because it's very careing for
our Ant, so: Whatever the community will decide on, I'll definately support
as good as I can!

Good night everybody!
