Right, and what i'm saying about "extends Task" is that it's a 
single-command-line sed fix to update a class to use it. Build file 
compatibility will be broken, after all. Compared to that, having to sed a 
source file to update it to the latest ant API doesn't seem so extreme.

That bit i can't speak to at all.
