I do have different views on it ,"Best practice" for a project folder structure
is very specific to each and every project and a very relative term.

Yes suppressing it would atleast make it behave the way the earlier versions
(1.7.X) used to behave.I am sure "javac" by itself would come with a solution
for the problem that you were trying to solve in ANT 1.8.X and then anyway this
feature in ANT need not be used.I hope its already there in the latest versions
of the JDK.

Yes suppressing option would surely help.:)
