On controversy:  A lot of your stuff, Dale,
particularly the various call styles, looks very nice.
 Another extension I like is ant-contrib's foreach
task.  However, some companies will only approve a
relatively limited number of technologies for use
within the enterprise.  The endeavor of getting a new
technology approved in this type of environment can be
arduous.  For this reason one of my priorities when I
create Ant builds for non-personal projects is to make
things work as much using only tasks distributed with
Ant (I do use optional tasks as well which are of a
classification in between).  Antelope and ant-contrib
include a lot of niceties but so far I have run into
few problems that could not be solved without adding
these into the mix.
