This is really only a hairy issue for processing Ant code itself.  In a 
general purpose sense for others using this xdocs stuff (like Steve 
does with Axis tasks, I believe) is only that the .java processed needs 
to have been compiled first and in the classpath (which is used for the 
IntrospectionHelper magic).
