What worse - having above errors in the beginning of the build file totally disables all Ant's completions :(

If this was the only problem... The ant editor seems to have a hitch against custom taskdefs.

Isn't nobody concerned about this issue ? Without proper support of namespaces for custom Ant tasks - it's impossible
to recognize to which package some custom task belongs, as usually the only person who knows that is the one who used that task.

For example - people go and ask me what is <propertycopy and I have to tell them it's Ant-Contrib every time.
If it was written as <ant-contrib:propertycopy - no question was asked at all. The same about <deploy vs <tomcat:deploy, etc and etc ..

I really hope someone will adress this issue and make usage of custom tasks in our build files much more readable and easy.
