Hello Matt,

the image task now seems to contain a kind of  hardcoded flattenmapper.
This is not usual for an an ant.task, and I would be tempted to change 
even the default behavior of the task, considering this is a blatant bug.
Of course this would violate BC, or at least need to be entered in the 
section "Changes that could break older environments".
I find it unpleasant when we have to add new attributes/nested elements 
to tasks simply because the default behavior from the start was wrong or 
say ... unusual.

Maybe we ought to continue this discussion on the dev list.
