I am certainly not going to stand in the way of this if you want to
burn the cycles to do it, but I really see little point in it.  We
should be able to fix whatever is wrong with the Ant build to make
sure that it recognizes both sorts of tests.

<side-rant>The whole @test nonsense seems *really* silly to me. I
kiss my lucky stars that no one got the bright idea to do @getter
and @setter.  There is nothing wrong with coding by convention and
when there *is* a convention, mucking things up by adding
annotations that impact runtime performance is, well...silly.
