I'd suspect the classloader used for loading the algorithm is not the 
one you want. There may be a context class loader (We dont use that in 
ant, yet, do we?), or you find the taskdef that declares the algorithm, 
the classpath of it and you are away. Yes, this probably means a new 
kind of ant type...
