Good point. I started adding them, and then realized what you just stated. I
agree they are potentially dodgy (so perhaps we ought "frown on them -- 
unless there is a darn good reason".)

I see <deletes that say "clean up last build" -- but the "rsynch --delete"
(if used) ought do that (ought it not?) Even in a workspace that works on
the same directories each run (not like Sam's nightly to a dated directory)
ought be "clean" because of rsynch.

For <mkdir, if a users build.xml is 99% used for developers, and less often
by Gump, maybe there is a need. That said, I'm not sure it couldn't
transparently go into the build.xml.

I'd love to hear the reasoning behind these two. Are there examples of why
they are needed?

BTW: I don't see <delete or <mkdir documented on the Gump pages. Are they?
