That's not necessarily the best thing.  If you believe there really IS some way
in which the Ant code could be modified to alleviate some of the difficulties of
coping with such a situation, we would definitely be interested.  I didn't get
that from this bug report until your last comment.  If this is correct, maybe
the OOME is not the important/operative issue and rather the exception
propagation from <antcall> is.  If this is correct I would encourage you to:

a) assemble a small build example that exhibits the problem.
b) open a new bug report, referencing this one, and attaching the example
created in step (a).

br,
Matt
