I'm kind of biased towards having the SCM tasks which just shell out to exec
as part of the main ant distro, as SCM integration is important, and having
control of them makes it easier if in future we ever try to provide a
unified front end to a common subset of funcationality.

Problem with having that on the d/l docs is that it is frozen with the
release, which is ok for the bundled stuff but not for third party tasks.
