our users.  I can already see people being puzzled over Ant complaining
it doesn't find tools.jar

not sure what that means

I'm not totally sure I'll find time to look into this the coming
weekend, but we will most probably need to do something and ensure a
release is out before Java9 goes to the first betas.
