Error in jar task

It's clear that the MANIFEST spec says that lines cannot be longer than 72
chars. ( I won't try to speculate on the reason ).  However, the problem lies in
Manifest.java where the code which arbirarily wraps lines to no more than 70
characters does not attempt to wrap on white space.  Instead it'll just chop a
word into two pieces.   This is roughly line 300 in the method writeValue.
I would recommend changing this so that in addition to chopping it to no more
than 70 chars, it will only do so on white space.
