Allow User-Specified Ant Library Access In Scripts

That's possible but a hassle to maintain multiple copies of Ant for different
projects just for minor differences in library content. Apologies for not properly
thinking out my request before submitting.

Intent was actually more along having a cascading mechanism (like the
Mac OS X Java setup) such that my particular overrides would be prepended
to the classpath prior to loading the normal Ant libraries. As such, I can override
(for example) xerces.jar at the project level and use the rest of the libraries
 from the current version of Ant.
