I'm writing a generic Velocity to Ant logging adapter initially to use 
for  I just ran into a similar issue when 
logging from a filter.

Since filters must be a subclass of, they can't 
also extend ProjectComponent.  As a result, they only have access to the 
Project, not the owning task.  Logging through the Project is not good 
because the output is not associated with the calling Task.

After much head scratching and looking around, I eventually found this 
seems to work:
     LogSystem logger = null;
     Task owningTask =
     if (owningTask != null) {
         logger = new AntLogSystem(owningTask);
     else {
         logger = new AntLogSystem(getProject());

So if you're willing to pass Project into ZipScanner, it could log 
against the owning Task.
