Since this is already possible using -D, what's the difference?

Subject: command-line arguments


hi,

i have started using ant quite recently -- we're thinking of using its
platform independent features to replace batch files and shell scripts (in
part) rather than as an installation tool.  toward that end, i wanted to
modify the org.apache.tools.ant.Main class to set all command-line
parameters following a lone hyphen (-) as properties (of the form 'arg1',
'arg2' etc.).

any thoughts on this?  good idea/bad idea/been done etc.?

thank you in advance!
