1.7beta would be enough for me, but we'd also need an AntUnit 1.0beta
IMHO.  I'm going to post a release plan for it soon, but am still
waiting to get the .NET Antlib out of the door first (the vote on the
actual ZIP to release seems to be failing and I'll need a fresh start,

For the antlibs I renamed src/testcases to src/tests/junit and added a
src/tests/antunit directory.  The common build file autodetects
whether either directory is present and runs <junit> and/or <antunit>
if the corresponding directories exists.

I didn't think of the *-support.xml case, that would need to be added.
