Correct, this would only be a change in source layout. I will send out a vote about this soon,
since people's preferences on the subject differ.

My comments about third-party libraries should perhaps have been put in a separate thread
since that is a more or less orthogonal issue. I was not aware of (or had 
forgotten) fetch.xml; that should be helpful.

Still not clear to me whether there is a (nonhistorical) reason for maintaining ant.jar and
ant-nodeps.jar as distinct. Stefan seems to say there is not; Antoine only 
referred to the historical development. The question comes down to whether the distinction
between "core" vs. "optional" tasks is still important independently of 
third-party library dependencies. Again this should be considered an independent topic, as
they could be merged with or without a change in source layout.
