Not necessarily. Another way is for IntrospectionHelper to notice the
usage of unexistent stuff and just publish a message like:

    "Attribute (or element) foo is not defined, if your buildfile was created
for an older version of ANT, please run the upgrade command which will
try to port your build file to the current version."

As I said, this after two or three releases where the thing went from deprecated
to legacy to non-existent.

Humm, do we need a "ant -upgrade 1.1 -f  buildfile" command? Interesting idea.
This will just run a <style> task with an specific XSLT template and produce
