Hi all,

The sort of behaviour I'm looking for is
when using perl and invoke the "use strict" 

It shows where you are doing dangerous things.

Happy to have any sort of message telling me
I'm doing a potentially dumb thing.  I do it
frequently enough ! ;-)

I suspect with the number of newbies using Ant
that these sorts of "protect the user" capabilities
will become more requirements if Ant is to be
adopted in a wider audience.
