Cool. Thanks. And -- thanks for all the work that you've put into Ant. I
really appreciate somebody taken good care of it.

I go back and forth on the theory of whether or not to explicitly import the
classes or just the packages. There's good arguments on both sides of the
fence -- lately, I've been leaning towards just importing the package and
being done with it. If I run into a situtation where I've got namespace
collision because of it, I probably need two distinct classes anyways... :)
