Like you can see I did not commit it yet but made a patch due to the
possible side effects Ross e.g. mentioned.

The problem with it is that we still have the offending targets in the
ant files. e.g. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-823 If we keep
an init target (deprecated) and do not rename it, it will interfere with
other application (that as well may have an init target).

The only solution I see is to get it done and update the docu. ATM I am
building a new application for a client and I need to have full forrest
as ant. Seeing that the issue is older then 2 years, I am willing to do
the work and basic testing. 

Till we have consensus in the terms of action I will add my work to the
issue tracker as patches.
