Yes, I ACK this, but I'd like to see if I can /use/ subant to have 
Gump-like functionality.

For example, if you added an interceptor system right before each call, 
I can do everything I like before each project call. In this way I can 
subclass subant and make a "gumpant" task, that would be used by centipede.

Does this make sense?
