I can't comment on your approach, since I don't think I understand it.

This is precisely what I proposed to do in my design #2 based on a listener.

So far I think I like #1 best, i.e. adding a few overrides to the log
methods in ProjectComponent to support an additional category. I'm not
sure we'd need hierarchical categories a la Log4J or
java.util.logging. Makes it more complex, and we don't want to slow
down Ant's logging.  --DD
