Many ways to do this. One naive algorithm:

	1. Pass in list of solutions as an ant Property
		* i.e., string with some internal delimiter repeated between solutions
	2. Use AntContrib's 'foreach' logic task to iterate over solutions

For 'foreach' see 

The confusing thing about pure Ant is that it is more declarative  
than procedural. AntContrib
optional Logic tasks make certain activities easier for those more  
oriented towards
procedural coding.
