Regardless of the decision on ant-contrib I'm still changing build files,
including downloads.xml, and the patch will need to be updated if applied.
 It would make my life much easier if we could just get out a preliminary
unofficial "release" that satisfies all the Apache requirements with the
build files as is.  I didn't write these build files.  I've cleaned up
some crud but there is much more to go.  Once we get back to where we
started, people can start mucking with the build files.  Hopefully I will
be doing something else by then so we wouldn't be colliding.
