Just remember that in the context of running ant inside a GUI, there is no
such thing as stdout (well, there is, but you can't assume the user will
see it). My previous emails where lobbying for more of an event based
approach to delivering the <echo> output to the GUI rather than an approach
whereby you register a new PrintStream to use in leu of System.out.

Just something to consider in any proposed changes.
