no,. nothing to do with ant-launcher.

its the stuff behind Exec and Java that people want. Ant has the most 
debugged process execution logic out there. Plus property env works on 
pre-java1.5 systems

with the code behind these two in their own library, you can do a 
launcher that takes some xml manifest of a program to run

  <javaversion min="1.5.05" />
   <maxmem bits="32">128</maxmem>
   <maxmem bits="64">400</maxmem>

..whatever. It would be up to someone else to do this stuff, ideally 
using some of the tomcat launcher task.
