I knew I was cheating.  To give you a target easier to attack:
<junit>.  Tool specific and the tool is open source (OK, it became
open source after the task had been written ...).

And I didn't want to say that this should be forbidden.

In some circumstances it may make sense to include a task with Ant, in
others it may be more appropriate to not do so (the aspectj compiler
task is part of the aspectj distribution).  As we could run into
license problems by including the task, I'd prefer to at least explore
the option of bundling with the tool in question.
