Peter is currently on vacation, I hope he'll be back soon enough to
chime in.

Maybe we should consequentyl call the first 1.6 release 1.6.0 then?

I'm not happy with some code details but the overal functionality is
there.  We should be able to properly document it and see whether we
all can agree that this is the antlib functionality we want.  If we
agree on it, we should put it into 1.6 - changing implementation
details would be like fixing bugs IMHO.

Of course not.

Not in 1.6(.0) IMHO.

The permissions stuff is causing some problems and we need to get the
new Launcher tested in a wider audience.  Gump doesn't use it, it
still uses Main as its entry point and switching it to use Launcher
will cause a lot of problems (if we do it right and don't cheat by
adding ant.jar to CLASSPATH, that is).
