The pack200 ant task code
(https://java-pack200-ant-task.dev.java.net/) is licensed
using the "SUN PUBLIC LICENSE"
(http://www.netbeans.org/about/legal/spl.html) and thus not suitable
for including in
ant source.

That been said, the code is a very thin wrapper java.util.jar.Pack200.Pack200.
So, write your our wrapper, create a bugzilla report with the code
testcases and doc attached.
