It seems like the spaces get appended to the attribute's value, which means
that the first character being a space, marks line continuation and the 
line contains nothing but spaces.  Anyways, here is a manifest that will be
accepted by JDK's jar and not by Ant's.
<Snip>
Name: x.jar
 
                        
attribute: xy.jar

(I hope bugzilla doesn't trim the spaces.)
It is real low priority.  I will leave it to you, Conor, to decide on what's 
best.
