Hi David,

Thanks for vetting my responses. One nub remains:

I will be happy to change my symbol casing if you feel passionately 
about this. I think, however, that our existing ant scripts are fairly 
poor examples of ant usage. For instance, they do not take advantage of 
the -projecthelp machinery and they jump through crazy hoops because 
they don't understand custom ant tasks. I think symbol casing is just 
one example of ant style and usage which needs improvement across our 
scripts. I, however, am not willing to go to the stake for this heresy 
and I will defer to your judgment. Please let me know what you think. :)
