That works for me. If it grows beyond a couple of classes/files we can
always split it back out.

As I said, Steve has been looking at this. I can't remember the latest
thinking. I've looked a bit further just now and I think that perhaps
the easiest thing is just to move BuildFileTest into the main source
tree (and hence ant.jar) without moving it in its package namespace. The
Ant tests would continue to function as is and task developers would not
have to copy and paste code to access test facilities.
