Giving a heads up for things that will be broken?  Making the ouput as
ugly as possible so people are going to change their build files?

count mine as a -0, not a veto.

As a random thought: Add a new command line switch -old or something.
Unless this one has been specified, throw a BuildException wherever we
have been printing deprecation warnings in Ant 1.4.1.  This will make
living with these warnings even more painful.  I'm not convinced I
like this idea myself, but it could partly resolve this issue.
