Jose Alberto, you don't need to convince anybody that Ant 1.4.1 class
loading behavior is broken.  We just cannot repair it without breaking
systems that relied on this broken behavior - and it has been broken
long enough that we cannot say "oops, a bug, we've fixed it" IMHO.

Probably not, need to check.
