Interesting, you are raising the same point as me 8-)

The situation could be "fixed", if AntClassLoader would know whether
it has loaded any class/resource - and <classloader> would only work
on instances that haven't loaded anything yet.

This would take away the power to modify the core loader, of course -
but since the core loader doesn't have to be an AntClassLoader
instance and never is AFAICS, the task wouldn't work on that anyway.

The task as is may be useful to some but will cause more problems that
good for the uninitiated - thus I'd rather not like to see it in Ant's
core distribution.  There is nothing in that task that would make it
unusable if it came from a different jar/antlib.
