Let's try to keep things simple... A download task is clearly needed, and
will simplify and help people install other tasks, libraries and addons.
It needs to support a list of mirrors ( fall back, "preffered"), a number
of different naming schemes and packaging formats, maybe one descriptor (or
more ) and dependencies. 

Ant has strong requirements for the stability of the APIs and DTD - 
so we must be very carefull with what we expose, it'll hunt us a long time.
It would be better to have it incomplete and add more as needed then
bloat it and then try to refactor.

PMC: can we grant more people access to the sandbox ? Or should we just use
jakarta-commons-sandbox, which is already available to most people, and
take it from there when it is ready ? The second solution requires the
least effort, that's what I would preffer  :-)
