well, when i asked "is this working", i was more referring my question
to the chap who started this thread.

well, i didn't know (and i need to send a quick update to
before they publish).

but the taskdef and article does give what i'd like to think of as a
decent introduction to using the Path objects in writing Ant tasks, and
supporting multiple ways of setting values (as attributes, sub-elements,
or as a reference attribute), plus using the logging states.  it still makes
a good intro task to the second one (one that's JAXB-specific).

if i really wanted to get fancy, i'd have played with the DirectoryScanner
and stuff like that, but I understand the api a lot better than
that stuff, and so will my readers i assume...i also would have ended up
duplicating quite a bit of the code of ant if i had.

no worries...
