Junit4 is special as I'm trying to set up a phone conf with the team to 
discuss who owns the junit4 ant task problem. If we can have an 
excellent junit4 task bundled with junit itself, I'll be happy, or we 
have a separate antlib. I think the latter  may be the place to start 
-leave <junit> for junit3 only.

I'd only ever install it in a new VMWare image I didnt value from now 
on. Its own JRE!. It's own version of Ant! with an Ant.bat! on the path!
