What are the 'bounds' of ant1, and what is "ant1" ? We are talking about 
making the change in _ant_ ( targeting ant-1.5 release ).
 
So far attributes were renamed without any concern to 'breaking 
somebody's setup' - upgrading ant actually meant breaking everybody's
setup.

The proposal doesn't brake the build.xml format ( it extends it ), 
it'll work in most cases, solves an itch for many people,
and it's a clear improvement to ant. 

Do you have a better solution - great, propose it and we can 
discuss the technical details.
