True, but before building the distribution the Wrapper files have to be 
somewhere so they can be copied to their right locations. Now we have 
wrapper.home set in ant.properties. If the wrapper would be included in 
the dist wrapper.home should to be somewhere under the cvs structure for 
simplicity. ./tools/wrapper, ./lib/wrapper  or something. If it can't be 
included in CVS for some reason (size?) an ant download task could be 
added, but still the placement for tools like this is unclear to me. If 
it would be included in all distributions I guess ./lib and ./bin would 
be OK, but as this is not the case...

You're right about the libs in ./bin. This can be fixed at the same time.

You did a good job creating the wrapper. It works surprisingly well.
