Thats just my personal "gut feeling" about creating tasks internally to
another task - just feels weird to me.  Go with it though, and don't worry
about this particular item as its not a big deal either way for me.

I think you're on the right track.  I don't have any additional
ideas/feedback.  I look forward to your contributions!

Ok, one additional thought: perhaps we should have a generic <vendor>
sub-element too that takes a 'classname' attribute so that implementations
can be plugged in at run-time without modifications to Ant.  The dilemma is
that only the already defined attributes/elements of the abstract class be
available for population so there wouldn't be any extensibility other than
being able to dynamically create an implementation and have it used on the

Sure do wish that DynamicConfigurator patch hadn't gotten rejected!  :)
