Try it ;-)

OK, it is not that hard, but not easy within the confines of Ant's
public API either - without breaking signatures of methods that have
to be kept for backwards compatibility, that is.

One of the biggest problems is that Ant opens the output file before
you have a chance to perform timestamp checks - so the output files
cannot easily be used as <apply> targets IIRC.
