Hmm... you could add to ac with no work from us. 
haha, always a plus.  But if core has <concat> then it
really makes sense IMO that it should also have
<split>.  So I leave it up to you, Dale.  If you are
willing, just open up an RFE in Bugzilla and attach
the task as an attachment.  Or if you'd just as soon
put it in ant-contrib, it wouldn't be the first time
we had to redirect folks.  :)
