So you propose namespaces to make the "aspect" system pluggable, am I
getting this right?  You want a facility to say "I'll take
responsibility of all task attributes int the baz namespace"?

This probably is the cleanest way to separate such knowledge about any
facility from Ant's core. But we still need a way to leave the basic
things - like failonerror behavior - that would be provided by stock
Ant simple.
