Hi Tom,

take a look at spec/core.html in the CVS repository. You will see
there are some new ideas about extension task. Basically those tasks
wouldn't be built into Ant but loaded on demand.

If you feel comfortable with the Apache license and can live with
other people hacking your code - maybe even Mariusz changing it to be
less Visibroker specific ;-) - why not?

We will probably need some time to figure out how to deal with
extension tasks contributed to Ant. Maybe start a jakarte-ant-tasks
project after the extension mechanism is totally clear? 

Finally I'd love to see a list of known extension tasks that are not
part of the jakarta-ant project (and might not even be open sourced)
be added to the Ant distribution - as soon as such tasks are there
that is.
