Yes, it could be a problem. But running the risk of speaking yet another
anathema, I'm starting to believe the Jelly approach of using XML namespaces
is the right one...

The problem is not so much that one wants to use the same name (say
containsregex) for two different things (a condition and a filter for
example), but more than different AntLibs from different people might clash.
Using a prefix would work, but XML has built-in namespace support, and the
syntax is not that bad actually, and Ant would remain the default namespace.

Plus a single bean could implement both Condition and FileFilter if it
wanted, so there's no name clash anymore...

I'm not sure it's wise the raising the XML namespace issue again at this
time, if AntLib is to go anywhere though... --DD

The only problem is the namespace problem. But this is not a huge
