I don't control the nightly builds, nor do I have a complete understanding
of how they work.

I do think that shipping a parser with the release would be a good idea.
The JAXP reference implemenatation license looks pretty nasty at this point
- IANAL, but redistributing this with Ant may not be permitted.  Xerces
license is clearly compatible, but as of the last official release, JAXP
wasn't supported.

If integrating this function into Ant was premature at this time, let me
know and I will gladly undo the changes.
