Sounds good to me.

Hmmm .. not sure exactly what the best approach. I suppose the way you 
describe would be the easiest as all you would need to do is

void createWorkspace(...)
   Workspace w = super.createWorkspace(...);
   registerAnt1Tasks( w );
   return w;

Alternatively you could transform the target element from <target ...> to 
< ...> and make sure this results in the ant1 version of class 
being used. Im not sure if this will work but I believe this is where Adam 
wanted to go (May even be there now?).
