The problem is that there are lots of bug fixes to Ant in HEAD that can be 
back ported to 1.5. These are useful for many people. The more that goes in 
the more likely it is that we need a beta, etc. If these are must-haves then 
I'd rather push harder on 1.6 to get them out there and live with the javah 
pain on the current 1.5.3.

At the moment I have issues with <import>. The importing within imports is not 
right, at the moment, I think. Also I think we need to give <antlib> a bit of 
a stretch :-) I'd like to see that happen first. For me a first 1.6 beta is 
still about a month or two away.

Agreed (on both counts).
