+1 to the concept for ant 1.5. How do achieve it (this code or that one), I
don't really care ;-) --DD

Subject: [PATCH] Definer to allow types/tasks from the same jar to work

This patch is essential for me ( in jakarta-tomcat-connectors project, I 
suspect other jakarta projects are affected as well ). I'm willing to make 
changes - but I need this functionality in ant1.5 in a form or another.
For a use-case, look at the cpp-tasks on sourceforge or any other 
user-tasks that uses both types and tasks.

In ant1.4, this only works if the code is in the CLASSPATH ( or 
ant/lib ). It is possible to load multiple tasks that will work togheter,
or multiple types - but it is not possible to have the tasks ant types.
This is because different class loaders are used. A <taskdef> can load
multiple tasks with the same loader if file or resource attribute is 
used. 

With this fix, we allow the user to specify that he wants different
<taskdefs> and <typedefs> to use the same classloader instance, so the
tasks/types can use each other. It is backward and forward compatible - 
unless the user explicitely specify he wants the new behavior, the
old behavior will be used with absolutely no change.

It is possible to use the same build.xml with both ant1.4 and ant1.5,
as long as in 1.4 you put the .jar in ant/lib ( that's the
only solution in 1.4 to solve this problem ). Asking for loader reuse
can also be done with an explicit attribute.
