As we are using proxies in ant2 (99% probability) and we will probably have
a superset of functionality given by IntrospectionHelper I don't think it
will be of much use to Ant2. Digester is fairly kewl to work with
dynamic/varied setups but as we are likely to have at maximim three types
of objects in TOM (namely Project/Target/Task) I don't think all the extra
functionality it gives is useful.
