Taskdef cannot explicitly define the location of default optional tasks

           Summary: Taskdef cannot explicitly define the location of default
                    optional tasks
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: c_rodier@yahoo.com
                CC: c_rodier@yahoo.com


In the taskdef task, one uses the nested classpath element to define the
location of custom tasks explicitly so that one's build is truly portable and so
that one may put all 3rd party vendor libs in one area organized by vendor.

Taskdef does not allow you to define the classpath for FTP, JUnit, or I imagine
any of the optional tasks contained in optional.jar that ships in the lib
directory of Ant 1.5.  The classpath should be able to find these optional tasks
as they are in the java.class.path, and also I have tried to copy the library
and direct them to it with paths, filesets... within the classpath attribute,
but Ant will not find the class.  Even the available task cannot find them using
explicit paths.

This is an important feature towards making builds portable across environments.

Thanks,

Chris
