+ The -find command line argument currently only works if only a file name with 
+ no path is specified.  It takes as root "." where it starts the search.
+ 
+ It would be useful to state an absolute path and file name.  I know -buildfile 
+ allows you to do this, but without the search back up the directory structure.  
+ More tools being created such as AntRunner mean that the current directory when 
+ the ant script is run cannot be guaranteed to be a specific directory.  The onus 
+ is now on the ant.bat script writer to push and pop the current directory.
