Sure, it's up to you and the Ivy community to decide what you want to
do. The 3 uses I described are quite easy to implement, and there are
tons of examples in Ant itself. Regarding nearing 2.0 final, I think
it's never too late to do the right thing ;-) Especially when I'm not
the one who has to do it ;-)))

For 2.0 you may just want to make sure you don't have anything that
would prevent you from refactoring the code in the future to support
the better model we discussed. Cheers, --DD
