> The ant file for loading and mounting plugins is horribly complex now that we are using
versioned plugins. I've used lots of if elements and mutable properties from the ant-contrib
package. In my view when you overuse these tasks it generally means you should have a specialised
ANT task to handle the logic. ANT is not supposed to be a programming language.
> We need to create an ANT task for the handling the installation of plugns so that we
have more control over what is going on (for example, we can remove the need to have an unversioned
plugin to fall back on).
