(1) Create a build file that uses the deprecated stuff and (2) add
testcases that assert this build file does as advertised. (3) run
ant-update.xsl over this build file and (4) run the same testcases
again - they should test targets.

I'll see whether I can come up with some simple things over my
prolonged weekend.

I think so.

<renameextensions> is one case:

I know exactly how you have to write a <move> task that does the same,
the deprecation message of the task will even tell you in detail, but
I have a hard time putting this into XSLT - at least until I've
started to really read something instead of figuring out how it works
by looking at the code of others. 8-)
