Ok I will commit that.

Another optimization I tried was a quick hack to DefBase to have a 
static field containing the default classloader, so it
gets set once.  This did speed up the typedef the second and subsequent 
times and reduced the
time for the test to 1.6 second (from 3 and thus below the 1.5.4 times 
(2 second) when using the crimson xml parser).
However it is a complete hack, and does not deal with non-default 
classpaths  like:
<typedef classpath="${antlib.jar}" 

Note that the problem is not so bad for the antlib: xml ns shortcut.

<project xmlns:ac="antlib:net.sf.antcontrib">
  <target name="compile-mains">
       <ac:foreach list="a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i" param="program" 
    <target name="compile">

This will in ant 1.6.1 cause only one typedef of the ant-contrib tasks. 
is a bug in 1.6.0 which causes the tasks to be loaded for each ant-call, 
is fixed in cvs).
