Yes, this is certainly the easiest solution.

There will be tasks that depend on third party classes - like the
JUnit task depends on JUnit itself. In such a case you will probably
want to use that third party lib independent of Ant and will put it in
your CLASSPATH anyway.

So either the shared classes are valuable on their own and "deserve" a
standalone JAR file or you put them into all the task JARs that need
them. Right? That's fine with me.
