The plainlistener is more or less just a proof of concept.  When I put
it together I needed someting to quickly show to myself that AntUnit
really did what it was supposed to.

It does print the build file prior to listing the targets, doesn't it?

None yet.

The current implementation matches what Ant does in the JUnit case, we
separate between test class name and test name, both in the plain text
and the XML listeners.  Given that we don't have any XML listener in
AntUnit yet, I'd expect us to list build file and target there as

How would you want to create the fully qualified name (what would it
look like)?  Why do you think it would be better than separating the
information on build file and target?
