We'll find a way to get the right privileges to do this soon.

Yup, I'm using JavaCC 3.2.

The patches from the issue you pointed to have a hack to make JavaCC 
3.x work with Ant 1.5.x.  But the latest codebase of Ant has this 
support already too.  Ant 1.6 will be out in the relatively near 
future, so we won't have to worry about this situation much longer - 
although maybe it would make since to just use <java> to call to the 
parser directly rather than use the <javacc> wrapper, making the build 
less brittle.

Right.  Requires JDK 1.2 to run the build, but it will still be able to 
target="..." to 1.1.

Thanks!  Sorry I hadn't seen that one before.  I'll borrow from it to 
do what I need to get done.
