I think it would be best if the tasks and maintenance burden lie closest to
those that do WO development.  Technically there is nothing about your tasks
that require they be embedded within the Ant distribution.  We are currently
pushing back on taking on such tasks within Ant's core.  If other committers
are for it, then I support that, but it still is unlikely that your tasks
would make it into Ant 1.5 (there are only a few days left for the feature

I commend you for keeping the WebObjects world alive!  I support your
efforts!  I've had the pleasure of working in the WO-world in the past
myself although not currently.
