I just haven't added support for that to my Ant1 layer yet.

Not sure yet. I usually run the ant and mutant builds in tandem overnight and 
then investigate issues. Just working on some Ant1 <depend> bugs first at the

Yes, I need to support that. I thought the parser would handle it. I'll look 
into it.

I marked a few things as too hard when I started the Ant1 layer. antstructure 
uses the IntrospectionHelper which I don't currently include. It is probably 
just a matter of including that and making it compile. Not sure yet. The other 
task with which I have issues is the recorder task since it uses build loggers 
which in mutant are not normally visible to tasks.

Everyone is welcome to help :-)
