Another solution is to add a parameter to connect that specifies the log
level to use if connect fails and pass in Project.MSG_VERBOSE from
inside isExists().  This way you still get the error message when Ant is
tun in with the -v switch in case you need to diagnose why the import

This is what I have done in trunk by now.

You'd attach it to the Bugzilla issue - if you feel your solution is
better than mine, let's discuss that and then you can still create one.

or AntUnit.  Yes, we prefer patches that contain tests as well.
