I wasn't thinking about 'moving the code around' for now, just changing the 
status from experimental to 'accepted' for a possible m1/beta/release of
embed as a standalone addon for 1.5, and to make sure that the list of 
supported features is accepted for ant1.6.

The goal of the standalone release is to provide access to 1.6 features 
in 1.5 ( top level tasks, etc ), and to create the precedent for a 
'decoupled' ant release. 

One of the things I'm working on is 
ProjectComponentFactory/ProjectComponentHelper - which will hook into 
component creations, allowing various antlib solutions. This will also
allow future releases of sub-sets of the current tasks and lazier-loading
of tasks ( which will also cut 2-3 secs of the startup time :-).

Some code will have to move into the main tree - the interfaces/hooks.
If a concept is accepted by majority, and if a particular interface
is accepted as a hook mechanism - it must go to both ant1.6 and the
standalone embed, and the mechanism will be useable in ant1.5 the same
as it'll be in ant1.6.
