i just did a checkout and 'ant' - didn't try running any of the supplied 
scripts. The failure was a missing class, which i couldn't find in the tree 
(maybe it's in a jar - didn't check). No biggie - after subscribing to 
ant-dev and seeing how much is changing, i'd rather stay with 1.4.1, anyway

i noticed that change while browsing the cvs tree, but i don't think it'll 
impact the object as long as execute() is still used in the same way as in 
ant 1.4.1. My object only does the following:
1) calls super.execute()
2) for each file in the revisionList or revisionFile, calls super.setCommand( 
"-r x.y path/to/file" ) and super.execute().
