Please take your time. Although I am happy with the way this task has 
shaped up, the one area I would like to have your feedback is the 
sysout/syserr handling implementation in that PR. The intention is to 
try and avoid potential OOMs and other such issues, that have been noted 
in our bug tracker, but at the same time I don't want to end up having 
an overly complicated logic or something that could have been done 
better in a different way.

Given the changes, I am confident that it won't break existing tasks or 
anything else in Ant. I also believe that this new task will help people 
get started with using JUnit 5 with Ant to an extent that they can get 
the tests run (both JUnit 4 and 5) with basic reporting features and the 
ability to use the junitreport for the generated XML reports. So I think 
it's in a good enough state to start off with. I do plan to try this 
task as a "user" myself this weekend, outside of our testsuite and see 
if there are any issues or anything basic missing.
