Actually you can use properties in the subject.  You can define the 
properties within your build file using:

	<property name="..." value="..."/>

syntax and define them dynamically.  The mandatory ones just need to be 
set before the build completes.

Well, here we get to the evilness of inheritance.

A couple of reasons, huh?  It'd be trivial to write your own logger and 
use it.  Just copy MailLogger and do your own thing by mixing in what 
NoBannerLogger does.  Life would be so much easier if you just wrote a 
simple class, compiled it, built it into a JAR and then dropped it into 
ANT_HOME/lib and you could forget about it from then on out.
