I am more worried by the need to fix bugs of existing tasks/types rather
than by a wish to add new features.

I think if we add new features they should be very generic. That said,
your feature is interesting.
I have fiddled in my own project [not committed in the ant code base]
with a task which runs JUnit batches in parallel.

I am currently very busy in my day job and right now my dream is to see
a few more bugs of Ant 1.8.0 fixed and release a 1.8.1.
