Gump uses your build.xml, but supplies that build.sysclasspath=only 
property [1].  Gump does not use your or build.bat files.

What is "more common" depends on the project.  For most projects, once 
the gump descriptor is correct, it stays working.  This is clearly not 
true for projects that are in alpha states.
