This is correct (unfortunately).

ssdir was there first and worked well for people who had set up a single VSS
database with registry-entries pointing to it. Then came the need to
dynamically switch databases and we needed another attribute to do this (to
not introduce incompabilitites with older buildfiles).

Maybe something that should be changed in Ant 2.0 too.
