Sure - even without URLClassLoader (Ant 1.x is JDK 1.1 compatible).

We'd always have to make it option, though, as people using older
versions of Ant rely on Ant using the CLASSPATH.

(1) what happens on multi user boxes - I don't want to set system
properties every time I do not want to have the stuff that my sysadmin
has put into the extdir.

(2) versioning.

(3) you forget that you've put something in there.

others may have even longer lists.

All this is true for ANT_HOME/lib, obviously.
