Integrating a logging package as a listener adds little to no value to ant.

Sure it's clear. You have yet to implement it or think about
implementation. You don't see any need for logkit and/or log4j. So far the
only person who has implemented container tasks and threading tasks is me
... (Well frANTic has container tasks but they are not "proxy" based
container tasks which means that they have easier time).

So all I can say is "Show me the code!".
