What a bureaucracy (if the fix is trivial)...
The only good bug is a fixed bug.

Anyway, if the code is too fragile to survive even
the slightest change, can docs be safely fixed instead?

I am writing this because I stumbled over
41201 "[jar-task] wrong name for services folder" recently.
The latest and greatest docs at
http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/jar.html
still says that service element is supported since ant 1.7.0.

This bug was reported before 1.7.0 was released,
and the fix was sooooo trivial (1 char)!

18 months later there are only 5 bugs marked as duplicates of it, hooray.
