Because it has been submitted that way 8-).

Yes, you are right. What would be the "correct" solution?

just a little table,

Value of depend attribute -->    true           false
      true                        (1)             (2)
      false                      -depend         nothing

(1) what do we want to take precedence? +F or -depend?

(2) Do we always want to add +F in all <javac> tasks if the property
has been set?

I'd go for (1) == -depend and (2) == +F, but I don't use -depend nor
+F at all.
