I guess this brings up a bigger issue (again) which is when will we
modernize Ant?

I know that backwards compatibility is a huge thing, so I don't want
to step on toes, but it sure would be nice to be able to read and
contribute to ant's code with java6 features instead of java4

java4 and java5 have been EOL'd... so maybe ant 2.0 would be good
someday...the solution is to just keep development on the 1.x branch
going as well. i know found a document in the wiki talking about ant
ng, but i can't find it now...

(and no, i don't consider maven a replacement)
