I'm not only thinking about the one delivered with Ant as 'optional' but
also some that might be delivered as standalone because as I said the less
about external products there are in Ant the better. Say for example
Checkstyle that has its own task. How would you 'update' it ?

mm... this is actually the point. Don't you think this could just actually
register into a descriptor..descriptor that contains the list of
installed/to be install antlibs ?
This way issuing a "ant -plugin=all update" or whatever would update all the
registered plugins at once... I would not want to go through the command
line above for the 50 libs I have in my repository while a single one could
do just fine. :)
