I am not going to keep on biting at this horse, but let me just say that
the code I provided passes the basic tests. It needs to be tested with
someone having all the optional stuff. But I do not have most of the required

The least we should get from such exercise is the list of tasks that would
need to be modified in order to support this functionality. 

Even if many tasks need to be changed for ANT2, we need to understand
and probably start fixing the tasks that rely on the CLASSPATH.
