See, I've been swamped with a new job and I'm still pretty much
struggling to keep my level of involvement with Ant on a level that is
acceptable to me.  Technically all three sandbox libraries have been
up for "promote or remove" last months and since neither of them has
so far attracted other committers, "remove" would be the likely

So yes, everything that adds support by others to any of the sandbox
libraries is very much welcome.  I just can't promise I'll be quick
with applying patches (yes, Kev, I still have your svn patch on my
