I haven't looked at the issues involved with the MountTableMatcher, but 
I've been wanting this ability in the Ant task for a while.

It also seems like this can be done pretty easily with a separate conf 
patch file - to patch the patch so to speak.

Also remember that the conf patch target can be run standalone - no need 
to re-run the whole build just to patch a few conf files.  Also, the 
location of the patches is itself configurable - this makes integrating 
the task into your own build easier.
