If this is _dead_ ;-)

What instead I personally am starting to think, is that Ant*2* is dead.

The proposals are doing an excellent job in driving the incremental 
changes in the 1.* releases, which are gaining the Ant2 features gradually.

I think that Ant has big room to grow, as it's doing now; there is the 
new <import> tag proposal and patch, the antlib one.
If things continue as now, Ant2 will (maybe) come out of Ant 1.9 as a 
natural evolution.

Of course, this is my very personal guess.
