I thought it wrong, but then I thought, hey, they get to field the support
calls related to their version of ant, and decided if they wanted to do
that, I was happy with it.


as an aside, my builds go

-castor to create java from XSD
-xdoclet for taglibs, server.xml
-junit tests

httpunit would be faster if I switched tomcat to using jikes, xdoclet is
slow and needs tuning, but otherwise its time to test. Maybe junit could run
tests in parallel on an MP system if I asked it nicely.

but what it boils down to is that compilation is no longer the core part of
a build, or the bottleneck. Sigh
