Thanks, Matt. Not sure how exactly that answers my question, which was:

So I think there is no such auto-lookup feature, and a <taskdef> was
required in the example.

The special treatment of the "antlib:" namespace URI scheme laid out in
the manual is similar to such auto-lookup, but requires additional
configuration. I guess that's what you were pointing me to?
