Yes: First switch to current Ant instead of Ant 1.1 if you want to
contribute tasks - just to ensure it fits with some architectural

Second join the ant-dev list.

Third wait for Glenn McAllister to commit the new copy and move tasks
(together with a modified delete task). We are going to replace
copyfile/copydir with a single copy task and do the same for
delete/deltree. Rename is going to be called move because this is
closer to what it does.

Whatever you have in mind will probably benefit from extending the
copy or move task.
