I think we all are in the same wavelength on this. The
only additional thing we are talking about is to be
able to run a target "pickNeededJars" which may use
<jjar> to pick the correct versions.

Now it would be nice if to achieve that it would use
the information already in the antlib as oppose to
me needing to maintain my own set of dependencies.

Something like:

 <antlib update="true" overwrite="false" .../>

Which will use <jjar> to bring those things that are
out of date with respect to the version of the library
I am running.

In the regular course of things i would just be doing:

 <antlib update="false" .../>
