No, that's not intended (by me) at all.  If we ever want to farm out
existing Ant tasks into antlibs, that's fine.  I'm more concerned with
completely new tasks, that I'd like to offer a home in Ant-land
without adding even more stuff to Ant.

I can see good reasons to split out some of the tasks, but certainly
not all of them.  The whole bunch of SCM specific tasks could be
antlibs of their own, for example.  A release of Ant could then bundle
a specific release of these Antlibs.  This is an idea, but not the
driving force behind my proposal.
