Well, the issue also becomes the use of XDoclet.  Is there a way to turn off
warnings of unrecognized tags?

I want XDoclet to start building our task documentation.  I have made a
prototype that I will commit to the proposal area (hopefully later this
week).  I want tags like this:
    @ant:task name="fail"  category="control"

That way we can categorize tasks, and also code generate our, etc.

I've actually already modified my local version of some tasks to have these
tags for my prototype.

How can we have both no javadoc warnings and use XDoclet?  I feel warnings
are better than no XDoclet though!  :)

Not if we want JavaDoc to build without warnings...

Hmm... I can see the desire for them, certainly, but I personally would like
the docs to build cleanly under the standard doclet. Personally I usually
use FIXME for "urgent" to-dos and XXX for slightly less urgent ones, then
just grep (or whatever) for them. How much prettier is XDoclet than
grepping, out of interest? (I'd be quite happy with a general TO-DO non-tag,
or whatever, if you want something to search on.)

Alternative idea: keep the @todo in, and I nag once a week to make sure they
get done :)
