This is already in the wish list - and one of my biggest wishes. I
think, we all generally agree that a separate module for contributions
is needed, but we will need rules for this (every committer would have
commit access to all tasks in this module - but when/how may he/she
use it, what are the rules for releasing a version of a task ...).

Not sure, whether the notion of "good enough" is a good measure for
core jars - sounds a little bit (how do you say in the US?,
"politically challenging") discriminating. Something like "will this
be useful for the average build environment or is it a special case
tool" - which is vague enough - seems more appropriate.

Agreed - but I think ant-dev should serve as the discussion list for
the ant-contrib module as well. I wouldn't want to have a separate
user list for the contrib stuff either (well, we probably wouldn't
need a user list for the core anyway).
