Hmm... I didn't know there was controversy! Does this fall into the 'Ant 
is not a scripting language' category?

As a java developer, the try/catch seems more natural to me. I have 
spent some time working in a CM team, and realize that not everyone has 
a development background. The try/catch construct may not be familiar to 
everyone. Personally, I don't think that an enhanced 'sequential' will 
be an easier concept to grasp.
