I mean that there is an xdoclet derived task in ant's sandbox
(jakarta-ant\proposal\xdocs) which uses xdoclet to get the javadocs from
anything that extends tools.ant.Task, to produce an XML description of the
docs, which then goes through velocity to produce all the end user

The intent is (in the ant 1.6 timeframe) to
 -generate all the task descriptions in the ant manual from javadocs
 -generate some task descriptor too; each jar file will contain one
descriptor of all stuff it includes in it, so you can do <taskdef
lib="axis.jar"/> and have all the axis tasks, datatypes, extensions to other
things magically imported into your build file

which all boils down to "you have more time to spend getting the tests

For Wsdl2java, adding @ant.task category="xml" is all you need to do; and
even that is a hint to say 'put this in the xml category in your toplevel
docs'. Same for java2wsdl
