Anybody have a problem with splitting VSS off into an antlib so that
people with VSS can easily add tasks etc?  I recall that there are
also a couple of bugs listed (enhancements and patches) for VSS, but
without anyone willing to test them, they aren't going to be worked
on.  I see an antlib being useful here, but would like to know what
other people think.

It would be good for the team if you (or anyone with VSS access) could
run the current trunk version (1.7alpha) against VSS so that we know
ahead of time about any problems.
