-1 to delaying it forever.  Sorry.  We have to make up
our minds on what is the name we want to provide to
that attribute.

The following is from Jakarta's Binary Downloads page:

Nightly Builds are those that are very unstable (a.k.a. dynamite!). We
have no confidence in them. They are for developers who are helping
to develop the technology and want "the latest bits." Use at your own

On behalf of ant-dev, I am willing to apologize to those
users for whom any inconvenience has been caused,
but, please, let us not have multiple unreleased names for
the same attribute in there.
