Subject RE: [PATCH] refactoring of javac task into factory

I like a lot Jay's proposal and arguments. The only thing I would suggest
is some sort of more declarative way of mapping between "modern",
"classic" etc and appropriate classes. That would make possible, for other
compilers implementation to declare their own names, which would be used
instead of fully qualified class names. 

I have not checked the solution to the compiler specific attributes from
the patch though - how for example 'pedantic' for jikes is being solved?

Once this issue is cleared, and once this patch will make its way to the
ANT CVS, I would think this model should be reused for all others optional
groups of tasks sharing common funcionality - maybe even generic interface
based framework shuold be created for it.
