This is not about normal users of ant, but of 3pp using the code of ant, 
for instance to provide ant tasks. If someone made an Ant task on 1.3 it 
continues to function until we remove these items. So it could very well 
be that the user is using this task originally designed for ant 1.3, 
rebuild by someone else against ant 1.6.5 (ignoring the deprication 
warnings), gets intro trouble.

otoh if we never can clean up anthing...
