Do you mean that now, if I run:

 $ ant -f mybulid.xml  #instead of mybuild.xml (which I do all the time :)

and ant doesn't find that file (which it won't), it'll go off looking for
a plain old build.xml file instead, and run the default target of the
first one it finds? If that's the case (and I'm hoping it's not), that
sounds like it could get remarkably dangerous to me.
