Not sure I agree with that. There's one itch which Ant2 could scratch, and that's finally
ditching 1.1-compatibility. Admittedly there will still be bits which need different versions
of code for different versions of Java, but I suspect they'll be greatly reduced. We can start
using the container classes properly too :)

For me, moving to Java2 and getting rid of as many historical artifacts as possible (even
if it's only by providing a tool to get rid of them) would be a good thing.

Erik and Steve's book has quite a few sections which are related to this kind of thing...
