First, know that the .bat file is a source of much grief, much more than its
short length would imply. We are scared of it.

Historically the trouble has always been win98x support, as its batch language
is much simpler. If you tried any of your patched scripts on win9x, things would
break.

Ant.7 doesnt support win98. so we may be able to change things, though as I
said, we are scared of changes. There's no way we'd make the changes without
going through a release cycle.

Looking at the code, exit /b does look good; it sets the exit code and does not
exit from nested batch files, which is probably exactly what everyone needs.

The issue for the ant group is
 -do we adopt this (and so ensure no win98 compatibility)
 -what's our test process going to be.
