Yes.  ClassNotFoundExceptions.


When I re-checked, I found that I was wrong about ant.jar. optional.jar
and (of course) junit.jar are necessary.  But it seems these are both
necessary to define the taskdef (as I recall, though my memory hasn't
been great lately), they ought to be included automatically.

How does one refer to java-properties?  Is that the same as other "ant"
properties, explicitly defined in the build.xml.
