I recall in my email directly to you that I argued in favour of subant,
precisely because we can be incompatible in interesting ways:

-have different defaults for inheritance
-map target="" to default target
-add a failonerror
-add the ability to specify a list of targets, in order, maybe with their
own 'ifpresent' and failonerror attrs.
