Ant doesn´t include tasks which are part of another product.
1) Ants tasks are in the Apache cvs ( And the product 
   is not (if an Apache product like Tomcat, its in another cvs module).

3) Maybe problems with license

by a committer. Then it will be part of the next release.

At the moment its a special case. Because we are in front of the
not all commits to the HEAD are part of the ANT_16_BRANCH.
