If it were just for my personal use, I would do it. But this is the version used by a large
It is already a concern that we are using Alpha due to patches needed for <ejbjar> and
the like.
If then I have to change the version of ANT everytime someone decides to use some additional
that is going to be a problem. I prefer a nightly build from GUMP that at least has all the
(or as much as possible in there).

Whould it be possible for ANT to tell which parts are off, something like

    ant -version
    Apache Ant version 1.5alpha compiled on March 10 2002
    Missing modules:
        and that

Then at least one would know what is not there. Just a thought.
