Subject request for permission to add feature to <mail>...
Date Mon, 25 Mar 2002 09:09:10 GMT
Before i go add this, i'd like to run it by y'all:

<mail ....>Message text here. This would be appended to message="...",
for compatibility</mail>

To me this is much simpler that writing long messages in mesage='...' 
(maintly because of quoting) and simpler than dumping the text to a file, 
then reading it in via the file=... property.

To re-iterate, this is Exactly the same construct as:
<echo>some text</echo>
So it seems it would be in-character (no pun intented) for ant, unless of 
course <echo> itself is considered out-of-character.
