IMHO, procedural tasks do not belong in Ant. Ant is a rules driven system.

Yes, I have used the procedural tasks from Ant Contrib and yes, I think they
are useful. But, they don't belong in Ant core. I always try to implement
the Ant file in pure Ant first, and, only as a last resort do I use the
extension tasks to do what I want. It is a conscious decision to deviate
from the Ant core.
