Honestly, I was thinking of making a new task, and it can be done to map 
antcall to that task.

Anyway now I think that since we would need to use the supertarget in 
depends=, as yu correctly said, the best thing is to just give it a new 

Of course, this creates an incompatibility between the new imports and 
the old buildfiles that used super.XXX targets, but it's the same thing 
also with new tasks, ie if before the <condition> task I made *my* 
condition task, the two would now be clashing.

I think it's a minor issue, in front of the fact that I don't see other 
sane ways of making it possible to put them in depends="".
