Ant 1.6 is very much alive, IMHO.

2003. :-)

IMHO, I would hope to have it soon (where soon is undefined :-)) but I want to 
resolve a few things first ...

Import is one of them - and it is important to get right. There are many 
different views on this from simple include to include with simple renaming 
to something close to an object model and even xslt style operation. I've 
been a little busy lately to push this along. I'll be back ...

The others are antlib/namespace/polymorph stuff. I'm wondering if we can get 
to the point where the ant optional tasks are packaged as antlibs and 
potentially not added to the root loader if their supporting libraries are 
not also available to the root loader. This would allow them to be taskdef'd 
in later in a build.
