I thought the idea was that ant2 will have those famous incompatible API/
build.xml changes ( or will just be the next release after 1.9 :-).

It seems many people want to stop supporting 1.1 - I'm usually against, 
but if indeed nobody uses 1.1 anymore ( for development at least ) I don't 
see why it has to wait until ant2. 

Each version includes the features and supports whatever the commiters 
decide. We've seen a lot of pain in keeping 1.5 compatible with JDK1.1,
and having a better class loading in 1.6 would outweight 
the lost of 1.1.
