one question: why? Ant already has lots of support for the existing javac apis,
to the extent that we're actually used behind the scenes in a lot of places.
What is so compelling about the new API that we need to add a new implementation
and the test cases to match?

The only thing would make it compelling to me would be if non-forking javac
would stop leaking very large (multi-megabyte) static data structures. Is there
any discussion in that in the API? Whenever we reported that problem to sun in
the past, it was always dismissed as a WONTFIX "you shouldnt be running javac
in-process".
