Which probably would lead to a more complex system than it needed to
be without such a restriction.

Dominique's <super/> or something similar was among the features the
Centipede folks wanted us to do, but that never happened.  With more
Ant committers directly involved the project you envision would have
way more chances to succeed in influencing Ant.

If you want to have a first release quickly, I agree.

I would like to get involved, but can't promise to not disapear for
weeks like I've been doing over the past years.

At least three other Ant committers (apart from you and me) have been
involved in this thread so I'd say chances aren't that bad.
