[... Bootstrapping Ant ...]

No it's you who don't understand issues at the moment. How
do we provide the facilities you want ? we do things that
are either JVM specific or that brake tools. Many tools are
broken by adding classloaders because they use
Class.forName("blah") rather than
getClass().loadClass("blah"). 

Could you explain this a little more - we are always using Class.forName()
as most books and examples tend to use and never realized there was an issue
involved.

...

Cheers,

Pete
