Could you please expand Stefan? What's going on around the idea of
Polymorphism in Ant? (beyond <datatype refid="xyz" /> that is)

I vaguely recall the Ant2 proposals had something like Polymorphism, but
they're both long dead, and I can't recall anything concrete around it for
the 1.x Ant line. Thanks for any precisions. --DD

PS: Defining id'd datatypes outside of Ant to be shared by tasks *is*
important, and if anything around Polymorphism takes more than a few weeks
to congeal, then I'd vote (non-binding of course ;-) for the patch.

And at the same time something that I wouldn't want to apply.  It
interferes with several proposals to introduce some kind of
polymorphism in Ant.  I'm sure that you are not aware of them, but
there've been plans and even complete code for such things.
