The page still mentions that it is work in progress and not in production.
What is the reason ?

So... what does Ant has to do with this jar update ?
Sure Ant can takes advantage of jjar to update some libraries...but then
again it needs a central point of we want to push more and
more tasks outside Ant..obviouslly people will need to provide a fully
defined ant will need to be registered in Ant..and it would need
to be checked for new version when available. We'll certainly not maintain a
long list of task at jakarta that are available in '15462 places.

Say you have a bare bone Ant freshly downloaded...ok you need to 'download'
many plugins from many locations. how do you do that ? manually the first
time ? you modify a repository description of Ant and say 'plugin A,
http://' 'plugin B, http://", you run Ant with a specific command and
updates(ie download the first time) every plugin and install them ?
