Subject RE: PyUnit integ ?

Sounds like an itch you want to scratch ;-)

OTOH, you could create a target you would <antcall> to encapsulate 'the
crap' once and for all, passing in <property>s and <reference>s needed by
this 'function' target.

You might also be able to use <apply> if you have to deal with filesets.

Writing a full task to encapsulate a native tool is entirely possible, but
probably needs to add significant value vs. the straight use of <exec> or
<apply> to justify the expense/time.

If you chose to explain a bit more the details of your PyUnit use-case, I'm
sure people would have suggestions on how to ease the burden of its use.

Cheers, --DD

the time
