Great. (sort of :-) )

Wouldn't a #! be sufficient? I guess you never know for sure...

Can we agree that this is not a showstopper for, considering  
that this was an issue for I agree that it would be nice to  
fix so that it works 'out-of-the-box' for everyone, but at some point  
you need to make a cutoff for fixes, no matter how small. Personally,  
I think that this is something that can wait for 10.1.3 and/or 10.2,  
and there are other suggestions completely besides scripts (see  
Lance's mail about using Ant).

If there are no objections, I think we should target DERBY-667 and  
DERBY-677 for and continue forward with releasing
