Oops -- you're right, of course (I knew I should've waited until I'd had
some coffee before attacking my ant-* mail :) Okay, forget the other
suggestions, since clearly, they'll never even get reached -- but the
listener should still work, right?

(Of course, all of this version-mismatch-checking should actually be
unnecessary if you source-control your tools. If someone goes around that
and specifically pulls some other version, then they either know what
they're doing, or you should let them go ahead and get a confusing error
message so they can go ask someone who does :)
