I understand, but what I'm saying is, how could these batch files and crontabs
possibly get broken? Dependencies are idempotent: Running a dependency twice
produces results no different from when the dependency was first resolved.
Unless you can give me an example where a dependency in Ant is not idempotent, I
can't agree that there is a BC issue here.

You mean, change nothing?
