I'm not focused on getting anything in particular integrated into 1.x.  As we all know, Ant
is an extremely valuable tool.  However, I have found that some of the syntax and inconsistencies
of 1.x make it difficult to introduce the tool into some IT environments.  Therefore, what
I hope to accomplish is to accelerate the production of Ant 2.  

I'd be happy to help with any design, coding or documentation task.  Looking through the action
list, here are a few possibilities that look interesting, if these are not already being handled:

	Mapping File Attributes during transformation
	Filters extensions

If you have something appropriate from the xdoclet piece, please let me know.
