yep. many of the core ant tasks dont have tests as a) they were written
before the tests and b) everybidy uses them so a change which breaks stuff
will show up in Gump.

But if you are going to change existing code, it is important to add tests
which you show to work before you apply your changes. Example: the tests I
did last week on how properties and $ signs are expanded in strings. There
are lots of implicit tests for this, but till then nothing explicit.

NB, adding tests to existing code without making any code changes is welcome
too. :)
