Acording to ant 1.5 docs, you can define custom tasks and types
with <taskdef> and <typedef>. It is also a documented feature that
both taskdef and typedef can use a user-defined classpath to
load the implementation classes. 

If a user-defined task uses a user-defined type you get a 
ClassCastException. 

To me that means that <taskdef>/<typedef> with user-defined
classpath is broken. 

Please take a look at jakarta-tomcat-connectors/jk/native2/build.xml
and apache2-cpptasks target as an example. It won't work with ant1.5
without the patch.
