I thought it was clever and pragmatic. OK, maybe too clever ;-) But it
reminds me of dynamic languages that allow custom handling of missing
methods in classes, which is useful sometimes.

This is also a pragmatic solution, but I like it less somehow.

I don't have a magic solution, but I also strongly agree that we
absolutely need to go away from addTypeOfTheWeek() methods, and solve
the issue ones and for all. Probably too late for Ant 1.7, sure, but
I'd hate to have AntUnit go out with a legacy inheritance to
ConditionBase because we didn't address this issue once and for all.
