The reasons I made it 1.1:

* It's out for Linux on some architectures but what am I going to do
with my alpha - if I had one that is.

* What's with HP/UX and several of IBM's OSs - everything that's not
AIX I mean.

You knew somebody would say that and that this kind of discussion
could get infinite. 

But the main question - to mee at least - is, do we need Java 2
features at all? 

I see that File.getParentFile could not be used in Project.copyFile
but is this really a problem? Where would Ant benefit from JDK 1.2?
