Since you are using Ant's trunk anyway, if we decide to add parts of
the patch or a similar patch to achieve the same, you could modifiy
your patch and required baseline of ant, right?

I'm not good at names.  I understand why this is a good name in the
context of EasyAnt but struggle with the same name when applied to
"pure" Ant.

I recall being confused by the phase mapping when Xavier first
suggested it.

I think you will quickly find support for this separation here, in
particular if we throw in user definded prefixes where the writer of
the build file that uses another build file gets to define the prefix
of targets - hi, DD ;-)

If the concept of a phase is different from that of a "plain" target,
then it deserve its own logging, agreed.
