requirements scrubbing.

   * SVN support by exec [stefan]
-  * <libraries>: maven2, security. [stevel]
   * Local variables in macrodef
   * Fix for key IDE bugs (see eclipse, netbeans bugzillas) [all]
   * flatten in libraries to WAR/EAR somehow (related to <libraries>) [stevel?]
   * <classloader> to allow adding of jars to the current classloader (would solve a
''lot'' of problems at the cost of some issues)
+ === ''Must Have'' Features Implemented ===
   * tests for <apt>, make sure the task works properly; force fork=true.

  Less important stuff.
-  * <libraries>: multi repository support a la maven.

class loading, working with digital certs, etc..." Rated as 'like' because of the difficulty.
   * Look at all SCM tasks and pull in pending patches for new features. Find people to test
   * Lightweight Java1.5 distro without Xerces.

  Definitely not in this release. Pull stuff down here when scrubbed from the previous lists.
   * <issigned> to do signature checking (identify signatory). fundamentally impossible.
+  * <libraries>: maven2, security. Use Maven2 artifact library instead.
