If you are not careful it will break Centipede, because I had to remove 
some things from optional.jar to make it possible to load Junit and 
other things from external jars in cents.
Instead, just add a jar with the extra classes needed for the task.

Centipede is now approaching the new beta and will make this really 
easy, but if you need to commit, I'm not going to stop you, just keep in
