Subject RE: Ant 1.6 todo thoughts

Thanks for the quick answer Conor and Stefan. Glad to head this should be
working with Ant CVS. We're using Ant 1.5.3 of course, and are unlikely to
switch over to Ant CVS though. I will nonetheless soon make sure Ant CVS is
backward compatible with all our builds and custom tasks, and let you guys
know how it fares. Now that I have a GUMP-like system, it should be easier
(GUMP simply isn't applicable to projects that exchange more than just Java
JARs, like native JNI libraries, C/C++ headers and the like as we do).
