Cool, I wanted to do that, but wasn't sure how it would go over.  Do you
think \n or \n\t is enough?

Good point, one thing I was thinking of doing was checking to see if the
task was optional, but the list where valid tasks are storied doesn't
differenciate between optional and built in.  I was also thinking I could
parse the properties file, but I wasn't sure how that would go over either.

For the bootstrap we could use ANT_HOME and see if bootstrap is in there...
that assumes developers don't move it though, then bin users wouldn't even
see it.
