If I can get my stuff submitted to Apache then I don't need to worry about
the antlib stuff :)

Never the less, I would still have the distribution issues which I don't
want to deal with since Ant can easily include my tasks w/o it affecting any
other Ant tasks. These tasks will (can) only ever be used by a Surround SCM
user, in which case odds are they are gonna contact us anyway if they don't
know how to use them, since the help file will point to us.

So, can we all agree that I should submit my patch to the list and then
whoever's in charge can add it to the codebase so that it's in the next
release of Ant?
