I'm not against using a new mechanism for new things - starting to
ship new tasks in ant libraries and people have to import them
explicitly and to specify the classloader to use would help a lot.

But for the existing tasks:  People will not want to explicitly import
<junit> when they had it on their system classpath and it worked like
a charm so far.

Even worse, a build file that used a new feature like named
classloaders wouldn't work in Ant 1.4.1, not talking about Ant 1.3 ;-)
