Fine! Important thing is task is now OK. Would have saved some time though
if a bug tracking system was available (I know the  context and that a
"replacement" is coming, I'm just pointing a concrete example) :-) Was a
good excuse to modif and build Ant myself anyway!

Are there plans to drop support for 1.1 or do we have to check for backward
compatibility all the time? Producing inconsistent results depending on the
VM version is not an ideal situation. Impacts to performance and
maintainability will also be noticable over time. I will check next time
