I still think there is a bit of a mess in delimiter handling.

I have forked off some of the code for my own use

Not having to care about backwards compat I dont need to worry about 
breaking anything. I've tried to be a bit more consistent. As an example 
compare its crackCommands() method with SqlExec.runStatements() :-

Mine is a lot simpler, and I trim off the whitespace before looking for 
a delimiter at the end of the line. On the <sql> task, if you have 
keepformat=true, then a delimiter followed by whitespace doesnt (on my 
looking at the code) appear to get picked up right.

The other dirty secret about <sql> is that, right now, there are no 
tests for it. Its one of those things that needs functional testing, not 
unit tests. We could (and should) use HSQLDB, but that wouldnt catch 
bugs against mssql, oracledb, postgres and mysql.

There's no easy way that I know of.
