With Xerces-J we are going even further, we put the CVS HEAD jar onto
the bootclasspath so it gets used instead of Crimson.  This should be
possible with Xalan as well, and to me it even looks as if we'd use
the same mechanism (type="boot" on the <jar> element).

Seems build.clonevm is becoming a FAQ 8-)

The bootclasspath trick is not working since xml-security's <junit>
task runs in a different Java VM by using fork="true".  Ant's CVS HEAD
uses a new Java system property to ensure that the forked VM uses the
same bootclasspath as the one running Ant.

I'll enable that property for xml-security in a few minutes.
