Ah, I should have left it to the Ant master instead of being all 
clever-like. :)  A one-line fix is definitely easier than a maze of twisty 
little namespace prefixes.  In my defense, the usage you presented isn't 
really made clear in the Ant docs for <taskdef/>, <typedef/> or 
<antlib/>--in the first two the examples use .properties files, and I found 
the latter confusing--and the ant-contrib website doesn't mention that it 
can be used as an antlib at all.

For what it's worth, I like the namespace version: it clearly defines what 
is Ant and what isn't.
