No way to run Apt processor for JDK 1.5

Your name for the -s command line argument (i.e. preprocessdir) seems a little 
sub-optimal to me.

Here is a section from apt's help screen

  -d <path>                  Specify where to place processor and javac generate
d class files
  -s <path>                  Specify where to place processor generated source f
iles

Now -d uses "destdir" inherited from javac task.

It is pretty hard to build a semantic connection between "preprocessdir" and 
the description of -s. I can't even tell intuitively if "preprocessdir" 
contains inputs or outputs of the task.

Can I suggest "gensrcdir" as in "generated source directory" as a better name, 
based on the description of -s above?
