I want to do a few things aswell. I will try to do them on Monday if I get a 
chance. Namely;

1. get a <changelog/> task happening. (Basicallly an adaption of the one in 
jakarta-alexandria CVS). Produces an XML report based on changes present in 
CVS repo

2. get a <extension-tool/> task happening. Reads a set of jars and generates 
a manifest that declares dependencies on all of the said jars

3. get a <build-number/> task happening. Basically read/write/increment build 
number from a property file. Like PropertyFile but much easier to use.

4. maybe a <libtool/> task that checks that a set of librarys are present in 
classpath and if not issues a warning (basically

I already have 1-3 done, (4 is just an idea I had then) but they need to be 
checked to make sure they are all good.
