Subject Re: build.classpath and tinderbox builds

There's actually quite a significant overlap in functionality between Sam's
code and the work that I've added to Alexandria which now supports the
reporting of build and JUnit testing. In fact I've suffered from the very
same classpath issues, but I've just been forking of java tasks to do the
builds of other projects. I suspect that they working in very similar ways
(XSLT).

For those that are interested I'm just working on updated documentation for
the web site. Hopefully I'll have it done in a week or so.
