After some testing during upgrade webdav & httpclient to their latest versions
showed us some problems with the webdav communication. It was no longer
possible to list directories with webdav.

Once it works VFS will support it. But you are right. A project with such a
dependency list has the potential to drive the user into a jar hell.
But surf on the latest version wont make it better.

> Also, you build against commons-net-1.4.0 according to project.xml.
Same story. Its often better to use more recent versions but we should
take care not to break backward compatibility too fast.
Now that commons-net has a new parsing engine there are arguments to 
break it, so we can go that way. Yes please file a new bugzilla ticket with your
patch - as enhancement - we can apply it after release 1.0

Thats true, thanks for pointing out. In the future I'll take more care NOT
to upgrade the project.xml. Without any reason.
For now I'll sync dowload.xml with it.

> Now, one more thing.  I'd like to add Ant-1.6+ antlib functionality.
Sure, we can to it.
Isnt the main advantage of it to have a namespace? So we could name your vfs
tasks simply copy, move, ...
In ant one can use 
xmlns:vfs="antlib:org.apache.commons.vfs.tasks" and then
<vfs:copy ..

Or am I wrong?
