I would like to be able to do at least 2 more 
things before Ant 1.5 is released: 
1.  Graduate the proposal/filterreaders to the main tree.
2.  Graduate the proposal/selectors to the main tree.

Their implementations are acceptedly 'Ant1'ish.  
But it wouldn't be too much of a hassle to 
rework it to suit the proposed Ant2 declaration 

The FilterReaders proposal, if it makes it into
Ant 1.5, will lay the ground work for existing/
new tasks to adopt this in Ant 1.6.

The Selectors proposal will address a 
long felt need to be able to include/exclude 
files using pluggable file selectors.

I am still waiting for feedback from ant-dev 
on the selectors proposal.  So far, IIRC, 
only Peter has found the time to comment on 
its implementation.

I would like to take this opportunity to ask for 
a feedback on the filterreaders proposal as well.

Sounds like a plan to me.
