-1, this issue is biting a lot of people judging by comments on 
ant-user/ant-dev and the number of votes the bugs receive on BugZilla 
(That's right folks, it is worth using your votes on BugZilla)

+1. 1.5.1 is 3 months old now so I don't think we have to stick to a 1.5.2 
deadline that is really artificial. MHO would be to get this done in 
whatever time it takes, release 1.5.2 and then call 1.5 done.

I'd be happier to do it right, first up and save the hack work. There are 
some work arounds being suggested with <touch> which may serve in the interim.

All MHO.
