We could add an optional directory to last level. The order
should then be:

1. Scan the directories mentioned in the
   <taskdefs extpath="foo:bar/ext"/> path.
2. Scan the $user.dir/ant/taskdefs directory.
3. Scan the $install_dir/taskdefs directory.
4. Scan the $install_dir/taskdefs/optional directory.

Note that an optional directory for 1. and 2. are not very useful.
Optional tasks have only meaning in the Ant distribution itself.
