BTW what I wanted to do but didn't get around to doing was attempting to 
generate shortnames for types auotmagically. The way I would do this is

if name specified then use that else autogenerate name.

The name generated would basically be the xml style name for object sans the 
"type" extension if it exists. So for tasks you would strip the "Task" 
postfix and then xmlize the name. This would be done for all different types. 
In cases where we have explicit tags for type (ie, ant.task, 
ant.converter) we already know the type. 

For generic types marked with @ant.type we would guess it based on the role="" 

So in most cases you should not need to specify name (unless the same type is 
registered as multiple roles or something).
