I think your change doesn't even "work" on W2K either (depends on how you
define "work").

If I call it like this (I know -foo and -bar are not valid args, replace
them by what you like)
D:\temp>ant -verbose -foo -bar
I get:
command line :  -verbose=-foo
and this is simply wrong!

Windows is fucking bad with these things and the only solution I can think
of that works for all Versions W95++ is to call it like 'ant.bat
"-Dproperty=value" ...'.
