The javacc target is practically useless as implemented

           Summary: The javacc target is practically useless as implemented
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.4
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: karltk@gentoo.org


The current javacc target, as implemented in
src/main/org/apache/tools/ant/taskdefs/optional/javacc/JavaCC.java is no longer
useful.

The ant documentation (http://ant.apache.org/manual/OptionalTasks/javacc.html)
for this target refers to the http://javacc.dev.java.net home page, which does
not offer any suitable JavaCC.zip. 

In fact, the supplied binaries and sources for the 3.2 version (the only version
available), build to a completely regular javacc.jar file, which can easily be
added to the classpath, rendering the convoluted hoop-jumping with JavaCC.zip
obsolete.

Is there any way that the current insanity can be dropped completely, in favour
of perhaps an internal check of available classes to determine if the javacc
class is present in the classpath?

Alternatively, can the documentation on the web about the JavaCC target be
updated with a description of how to make the current target work with the
binaries and sources for javacc 3.2, which indeed are referred to by the
http://javacc.dev.java.net link?
