To me the greatest advantage of such a reorganization is having
separate development cycles for all these components. It would
create a much more stable ANT core. Simpler to maintain and upgrade.
And give more chance for people to experiment with new ways
of providing functionality.

If I remember correctly, someone not long ago published an XML
format and task simillar to maven's stuff to track and load
Maybe we should think on having something like that as part of core.
