Yes, I agree it would be nice to have an optional set of tasks that can ship
with a full Ant distro that people can use at will. However, I'd also like
to solve the problem of making it easier to pick up taskdefs that people
might create on the fly.

Why are you exposing XML doc frags within the internal APIs? Once the XML
build file is read, we're not in XML land anymore. I'd like to keep it that
way and just leave XML as the disk based data format.
