Sure will change. The only comment I have about reusing ProjectHelper
is that that means all those UnknownElement blah blah blah and cruft
that is needed for projects but I do not see why would be needed here.

If we are talking about a parser that uses introspection to fill-up
the datastructure representing the antlib descriptor, then I have no
problem on that. For new changes we just need some new objects defined
and some symbol table to map the elements.
