I certainly agree that ant should maintain the ordering given to it.  The
fix would be to just use a Vector rather than a Hashtable.  Attribute
lookups within a Section would be barely slower, but since this is such a
rare operation and since the number of attributes within a section is always
small, even linear search is perfectly appropriate.
