Sure not - I have no idea how long it may take until a first
functional Ant 2alpha will be there.  But I see some potential that
Ant 1.4 (or 1.5) already supports task libraries using the same
concepts as Ant2 will do - just using a different implementation.

No it is not.

But separating things out in the current architecture is problematic
when it comes to backwards compatibility - if we have to include
j2ee.jar with every build of Ant (not the way we distribute
optional.jar, but as integral part of the binary build) what would be
the difference?
