Gotcha.  Not sure what worms you might be thinking of
that would be particularly slimier than any you might
encounter in the course of using the suggested core
enhancement.  As with most things that we wish were in
core, the contrib version might be a little unwieldy,
but it seems like it should work.  I have similar
issues with <for> (I am a proponent of adding its
functionality to Ant core) on the rationale that it is
a target-centric analogue to <apply>.

Oh well...
