Thanks Gilbert, I was expecting a more loigcal reply in a positive
approach,  if there are constraints or policy breach or licensing issues
which prevents this  ? ;-) I am no one to bother you just a expectation and
thoughts everybody can share with users / developers. I hope you would not
take it personally ;-)
Having a single task in ant core distribution does not harm, instead of
polluting build scripts with taskdefs and memory overheads.

Thanks!
