The file attribute has been in the not-for-the-release branch before
Ant 1.4.1 has been released - that's what Pete is talking about.

As we've already reached the point that we are unable to remove any
deprecated things ever, we can as well remove all deprectaion
warnings, you are right.  I don't like it, but guess I have to live
with that.  +0 to your proposals.

If we remove all deprecation warnings, can we please still mark the
old stuff as deprecated in the documentation - so that new users can
be happier.

And really, let's not drop the "remove all deprecated features" goal
for Ant2.
