I'd recommend the mailing list.  But I am 
willing to discuss it anywhere.  At the moment, the following is 
effectively the equivalent of an alias:

   <project name="jakarta-ant">
     <depend project="ant" inherit="jars"/>

We could make this simpler with a new <alias/> tag that has the same 
effect.  Thoughts?
