Of course; at least an order of magnitude more. But those that do will be *broken* if your
suggested change is made, whereas those that don't get a *warning* currently. 
My inclination was to err on the conservative side and retain compatibility even at the cost
of a little inconvenience.

Call a vote if you want to change the default and break compatibility. 1.8.0 and 1.8.1 have
the warning, so a break in 1.8.2 would only affect those who ignored the 
warning for two prior releases. I don't know if Ant generally has a policy for fixing stupid
historical defaults, like failonerror=false.
