I picked up ant-contrib when it was orphaned recently because jmol
wants it.  A little digging around shows that jmol uses it solely to
support this construct:

<for list="${all.Jmol.languages}" delimiter="," param="current.Jmol.language">
    <!-- Do stuff with @{current.Jmol.language} -->

If that construct can be converted into vanilla ant somehow, I would
be quite happy to drop ant-contrib into the laps of the eclipse-gef,
forbidden-apis, and java-sleep maintainers. :-)
