I'm in agreement with you on the order of events, Costin, 100%.  
<antlib> with tasks/datatypes is fair game to migrate into HEAD, then 
core changes to make the other components work as pluggable pieces, 
then refactoring <antlib> to support it.

I also agree with the use of interfaces (not just marker ones, per se) 
for distinguishing what components are used for.  Again, its cool that 
Ant supports making lightweight tasks, but I think it should be more 
rigid in the future and mandating components implement a particular 
interface.  Most of us at least extend Task when writing tasks, I 
suspect, too.  :)
