and I've put it into CVS anyway, just to have a quick fix of the

This one still won't work for user defined tasks that support nested
child elements, but the hassle would be too big IMHO, I'd prefer to
rework our current implementation to use proxies that are converted to
the actual task objects at the latest time possible.

Should this be added to the Ant 1.9 list?
