I answered that in my first reply. There's nothing stopping you from 
importing the WAS tasks into an Ant 1.6.5 runtime; the difficulty you may 
run into would be that I'm not sure what other JAR files (in addition to 
the one that contains the task classes) would need to be on the classpath. 
So, it may take a while before you've found all the JARs needed. Once you 
do that you run into the (admittedly remote) possibility that the tasks 
are coded to an API that is no longer available in Ant 1.6.5; I know the 
committers try extremely hard to maintain B/C, but it still might happen.

I also feel obligated to point out that I'm pretty sure that this would 
not be a supported configuration...

Good luck!
