I wouldn't say that we are always RTC.  For changes with potentially large impact, I personally
have always gone ahead and opened up discussion beforehand because I didn't want a large changeset
to come as a complete surprise.  But a particular "expert level" task being added to Ant,
I don't really have much problem with.  I don't 100% see a use for it myself, and am pretty
sure that if I did want it, it wouldn't be for simple build composition, but for some kind
of parameterized situation.  I guess I'm +0 to this task's inclusion.
