  Thank you for this option but it is not enough for me.

  My issue comes from my build system architecture:

  - a main Ant project parse a XML configuration file which is a Ant build file
    itself, and where I would like to make available custom DataType in a
    specific antlib/namespace

  - a plugin is a Ant project which is able to do anything it wants. Like
    taskdef and typedef...

  The plugin project has been "forked" from the main Ant project. How can I
  (programmatically speaking) transfer taskdef/typedef from the plugin project
  to the main project ?
