Probably not.

In part, blame it on Java for the larger part of it.

Current CVS will install an exit handler that tries to kill child
processes when Ant exits, but (1) there are no exit handlers in JDK <1.3, 
so this is why Ant doesn't support it on all platforms and (2) exit
handlers are not invoked reliably and killing child processes doesn't
work reliably either accross all platforms.
