I'm not sure the committers of the task would approve the task if it didn't
work on all of the platforms supporting Ant. Isn't one of Ant's key features
the idea that tasks work on all of the supported platforms?

If you can implement this on any platform it would be helpful. Portability
may be an issue, but any implementation that is open source would be a good
start. I say give it a shot.
