Ordinarily I agree that consistency is better -- but in this case, I'd
have to change a whole bunch of stuff, or be out-of-sync yet again with
CVS. I've been using this mod for a couple of months already, and
everything already uses "proceed"... and by "everything", I mean all my
<javac> tasks (which for me is lots and lots and lots), and there's
properties files and the wrapper-script and documentation...
