I agree, if I really need it, I really need to write it (and share). I have a great deal of
appreciation and respect for the work done by others to make Ant what it is and am not asking
for anything more. I apologize if my statement gave a different impression.

The open source story with ant is: if you need a feature, you get to 
implement it. If you can add a new compiler adapter in a way that it 
works, and such that ant still builds on pre Java-6 systems, then it 
will go into Ant 1.8. Otherwise, you have to wait until someone else has 
the need and the time.
