And at the same time something that I wouldn't want to apply.  It
interferes with several proposals to introduce some kind of
polymorphism in Ant.  I'm sure that you are not aware of them, but
there've been plans and even complete code for such things.

and even less with Perforce.  When things like this happen, I usually
hope that a patch is confirmed (i.e. works for me) by at least one
other (Perforce in this case) user.

committer can maintain does harm to Ant in some way or the other.
