That would certainly be optimal.  (+1 for seperate task)

With this addition to Ant 1.7 code base, we now have code that relies on 
jdk1.5 to build correctly (or will it build on <1.4?).  If this is the 
case, is there perhaps a case for moving some of the codebase forward 
from pre 1.2?  I know that these changes are only in one of the tasks 
(and an optional one at that), but I think it's time to look at 
deprecating 1.1.8 support and at least move the core up to 1.2 standard 
(with Collections etc).


Also - it'd be good to have <junit> as the old task and <junut> as the 
new task ;) [see subject...]
