I pretty much fail to understand why people insist that the
ant-contrib tasks should be part of the Ant distribution.  What is the
problem with using a third-party task library?  Ant-Contrib ships
under the same license as Ant.  And some of its tasks are maintained
by the same people you seem to trust for Ant.

That wouldn't happen, I'm sure.  If we (the Ant committers) really
wanted to add some of the Ant-Contrib tasks to Ant itself, I'm sure
the Ant-Contrib project leads wouldn't stand in our way.
