I don't remember this event - can you give more details ? Was it a problem
with the idea or the implementation ? 

I find hard to imagine a motivation for oposing an increased modularity
in ant's core - and that seemed to be the direction in the last 
years. Making the ProjectHelper and the task engine more modular 
and pluggable seems very reasonable and without any backward 
incompatibility problems ( since all old methods and model can
be preserved ).

I can understand oposition to different implementation aproaches -
that's why making it pluggable and then supporting multiple 
choices would be a good idea. 

IMHO that would be a better fight to get it in than a different
codebase. The more I look at both proposals, the less I like the
idea of ant2.
