So far your the only one who believes it is misguided. You are also the
most ignorant and have the least experience with Ant and other build
processes - is this telling you something ? ;) If you want to add
procedural elements feel free to. I doubt you will get CVS space here -
mainly as it is a different project from Ant - but will
host it. I think you will find that most of these elements will be rarely
useful outside small builds thou.

Remember opensource is about scratching what itches - you found an itch so
scratch it. There is little point in repeatedly saying the same thing over
as you will just get ignored.
