This has soo many angles.

Let's start with the fact that many of the tasks have been rejectes as
parts of Ant's core (conceptually) long ago.  I was one of the people
who rejected them (and I have written the initial version of
antcontrib's if task, BTW) and still think they'll lead to people using
<foreach> or <if> where a better solution exists.

Then you need to realize that the people behind Antcontrib are not the
same as those behind Ant.  Antcontrib is goverened in a completely
different way from Ant (benevolent dictator versus Apache-style
consensus driven development).
