1. we go through a rigorous beta test phase as it is the best way of
making sure you havent broken anything. Even so, we know that lots of
people will not touch it until version 1.7.0 ships, and there will be a
flurry of bugreps, usually related to odd system configurations

2. That's a shame. I've been using Luntbuild and it binds quite nicely
to Ant1.7
