Adding native libraries to Java is trouble; you need to have them in one 
of a few blessed places. As for javax.* packages, some are extra special 
"endorsed libraries" that can only be updated in recent JVMs by also 
putting them in special places.

Java Web Start works around some of this, so there may be tricks that 
ant junit could use in future, if only we knew what they were...
