Yeah, that's what I was originally going to do. I got excited when I
realised that not only could I use -listener to hack it, I could
possibly do it in such a way that I had some kind of AspectAnt that
would let me modify Ant on the fly for other tasks.

Is that going to be impossible for subtags, or do I just need to grok
how UnknownElements work etc?
