Might have been me.

Sometimes we build new features that are useful enough to apply the
right away in Ant's own build file.  It would have been silly to not
use <fileset> in Ant 1.2, not use <macrodef> in Ant 1.6.0's build.xml
where either of both saved us a couple of lines and made the build
file far more readable.
