I'm not for blocking the development of Ant 1, but for putting it into 
maintenance mode, and going forward with a newer cleaner Ant 2.

What would you propose would be the first chunk to port across. Mine would 
be the core processing :) 

Seriously, for this to happen, there needs to be some agreement on 
creating a new cvs fork for Ant 2 and moving ahead, as I can't see how to 
do this without breaking Ant for a short while. And we'd need to pick one 
of the two proposals to be the base....
