+1 Even for 1.5.x beeing the last JDK 1.1 release. We can start 1.2+
refactoring (like using collections) in 1.6 and continue in furure releases
IMHO!

+1 1.2+ is fine! 1.3 brought not enough efforts and 1.4 brought to many
changes... Additionally it is still not commonly used!

> 3. Name this subsequent release Ant 2.0 (due to its change in system 
> requirements)

+-0 I do not feel comfortable with the rev number 2.0... Probably because of
the discussions about 2 years ago...

> 4. Drop all the Ant2 cruft from the website. 

+1! Preserve the efforts, but dump the annotations!


Just my 2 EURuro-cents ;)
