Actually, Peter might have a point. Why not drop antlibs,
and to indeed differentiate future extensions from Ant core,
then add an explicit org.apache.ant.core package, which opens
up the app-top-level org.apache.ant package for antlibs.

So we'd have:
org.apache.ant.core	- Ant Core - explicit enough
org.apache.ant.svn	- SNV AntLib	- FOO AntLib	- BAR AntLib

I think I like this scheme better in fact. Use a more
explicit package for Core, while offering shorter names
for AntLibs. --DD
