I just checked out and built most recent Ant 1.5.9. Using the default 
modern compiler of JDK 1.4 work fine for classfileset with my small test 

The behaviour of the depend task seems not to be touched at all - it 
does not pick up Dependency.class. But I assume this shouldn't be 
expected so far, didn't it?

If you whish a certain case to be tested, so let me know.

What do you think will there be a complete compiler-independent solution 
for this problem. I guess it should only rely on the Java-Bytecode 
specification. If so I would like to encourage the Retroguard people to 
apply your patch (or its idea), too.
