IMHO the right solution for logging would be to use (delegate) to 
commons-logging instead of Task.log(). 
Unfortunately, neither commons-logging nor avalon or 
log4j supports a 'deprecation' level. 

Do we want to add a special API just for deprecation ?

What about a 'ant.deprecation.behavior' property ( i.e. 
no API change in ant core ). A task that wants to
report a deprecation will first read the property
from the project and act acording to it ( or do
whatever else he wants ).

Adding a method in core is significant - we'll
have to support it in future.
