Always good when that happens, innit ;)

Think it's time we had something of a heads together (as in
"cue dramatic music, start new thread") on this one, don't you?
My personal feeling is that it's a problem with javac, and that
only a javac level fix (like giving us access to the classpath)
is going to fix it. Having said that, I'm a thickie in the great
scheme of things, so I think the more people who are thinking
about this problem, the more chance we have of finding a
workaround which *isn't* a hack. Someone wanna outline the issues
as they stand and begin a new thread of brainstorming?

Got a spare? ;)
