I'd chose one and stick to it.  Neither of both is used by many tasks,
so I don't think there is a strong precedent.

In general we may want to move tasks out of Ant's distribution and
into libraries that have their own release cycles.

Talking of a task for subversion, it may be better to bundle it with
subversion than to include it with Ant's distribution.  It would
require a svn command line client (if I understand you correctly)
