Hi guys,

I would propose to that instead of <antlib> calling ruper,
the rupper people can provide a <ruperautoload> task (or
whatever other name you want) that will do all the finding and
downloading and then will invoque <antlib>.

If we do this, then we can concentrate here on the local <antlib>
while someone else can take care of the external work.

Jose Alberto
