! ------- Additional Comments From Daniel.Barclay@digitalfocus.com  2001-05-08 12:21 -------
! Regarding:
!   Just place -find last on your command line and you don't need to specify the
!   file name.
! 
! Please reconsider this for future versions of Ant.
! 
! Having to put a certain option last can get really irregular and inconvenient.
! You can't take an existing command line and simply add targets to build (e.g.,
! you can't define a Unix shell alias like 'alias build="ant -verbose -find").
! 
! (I suppose always adding the default file name (using "-file build.xml")
! works around that problem, but that makes a simple option much longer.  
! 
! Can you consider using the syntax "-find=xxx.xml" (that is, "-find" activates
! the find feature with the default file name; "-find=x.xml" activates it and
! sets the file name for which to search)? 
! 
! That syntax lets options take optional arguments without requiring that
! some argument be provided to avoid consuming the next command-line token
! as the argument.
