I would not bother with that at this point. JDK 8 is expected to include a module system,
which is likely to have a huge impact on how javac is invoked.

Earlier builds will likely include support for lambdas; I doubt Ant needs to do anything in
particular except support source="1.8".

Agreed, it is better to release what exists now. Thank you for taking initiative on this.
