You're just missing parallel="true" to invoke a single command (or as
few as necessary in case of a very long command line when
'maxparallel' is set) instead of one per path element. Your other
solutions work Matt, they are just less the "Ant way" IMHO, and
involve <pathconvert> and <arg line> which must re-tokenize into
different args (usually OK, but it varies in corner cases...)
