I'm not following...

I was complaining about the fact that:
1) You have to reference the class name. Ant is all about binding type
names to class names. We should be able to use a shorter name.
2) The fact that you can't configure some things inside a build
script, or in some config file Ant would load auto-magically, is a
PITA, especially when dealing with loggers/listeners.

For 2, I'm thinking of files in $HOME and/or $ANT_HOME that Ant would
load, and this files would allow to set site or user specific things
that normally go on the command line. Perhaps even allowing to define
"macro"-like user-defined switches that map to Ant command switches
with proper args.

I'm just thinking out loud, that all... --DD
