I agree with your evaluation on each of the options I
proposed, which is why I asked... so as an alternative
answer to "no correct choice," we'll say "it varies." 
In this case, because I didn't want to wait to make
progress :) and because Ant already contains a class
that ALMOST does what I need, I have decided to
refactor the existing class into a subclass of the one
I need.  This took all of a few minutes.

I will keep this in mind... in this case the needed
class is very GP, such that I wouldn't really want to
add a complete other jar for it....
