Jikes, you're right. How do I submit it, as the usual HTML page or the 
@tags... I'm a bit behind the Ant documentation efforts, sorry.

I keep getting "line too long" when I involke ant, because the script 
creates a too long classpath... I'd like to fix this ASAP, any 
suggestions? Shall I simply load in Ant all the jars in the ./lib dir?

Can you please expand a bit more?

As I read, it looks like <taskdef resource=""/>... for a 
more enhanced feature, we have the "cents", but I'd move this 
discussion-integration-whatever to after 1.6.
