With all this talk about what's compatible how about this situation.  Say I
write a tool in java, essentially a compiler, that uses some gnu libraries,
regexp & getopt.  Then I decide that I want to write my build files with ant,
since it's so cool.  Now I want to write a taskdef for ant that allows my tool
to be used easily with ant and distribute that rule with my tool along with a
link to ant's homepage.
