Note: It should not be assumed that anyone who uses jikes just always
cleans out all their classfiles and recompiles everything. I use jikes,
but I do as-needed recompiles because, for me, a full recompile of all the
classfiles can take anywhere from around 3min. to around 5min. on a slow
machine. (I can't just hand off all my source-files to the compiler at
once, because I have different classpaths for different files, so my build
is divvied up into lots and lots and lots of <javac> tasks.)
