Well, it is in the namespace associated with the contrib prefix.

When Ant detects the possible nested elements of a class and finds
methods of the appropriate signatures for addXyz, createXyz or
addConfiguredXyz it will see them as elements named xyz in the same
namespace as the parent element.

The Ant-Contrib if task implementation inherits addIsset from Ant's
ConditionBase class, so Ant sees a nested element isset in the same
namespace that the if task belongs to.

If nothing serious happens to the beta - it certainly has bugs, there
are tons of unresolved reports in bugzilla, but if no new serious bug
comes up - the final release is scheduled for July, 16.[1]
