That wasn't quite right.  There is some usage of ant-contrib's <if>
tag as well.  I've managed to come up with a patch for jmol's
build.xml to use only vanilla ant constructs and accomplish everything
the current version does.  It's quite ugly, so I'm not going to
suggest it to upstream.  But if ant-contrib is going to be broken by
the retirement of apache-ivy, I have an option to keep jmol alive.

CCing the maintainers of the packages listed above.  Are any of you
interested in maintaining ant-contrib, and either removing its
dependency on apache-ivy, or adopting apache-ivy as well?
