Well, maybe I do.

* write a task extending Typedef - this will be allowed to be used
  inside antlib descriptors

* make the task detect whether it is working on Ant 1.8.x or 1.7.x and
  the act like componentdef or typedef accordingly

* bundle the task with your antlib

* taskdef the task as very first task in your antlib descriptor

* use it to define the rest

In fact the task wouldn't even need to extend Typedef as long as it
extends AntlibDefinition.
