Hm :/ Don't see why ${tools.jar} is being quoted.  The 'tools.jar'
property isn't set in ANT_OPTS or ~/.antrc is it?

benefits of having to maintain it ourselves though.  Any fix to the
proper ant.bat, we'd have to 'port' into our script.

Linux IM clients all suck, so I haven't got one set up.. if you've got an
IRC client, I'm currently on, username 'Ix'.
