I think the only viable solution is to drop kopi and use jikes as a
compiler.  The very same problem is likely to come up in javac tasks
later on as well.

There already is an issue in Jira for this.

Ant's bootstrap script can use jikes easily by setting the JAVAC
environment variable.

I'd prefer to really not use kopi at all.  I've been told that even
the Kaffe people prefer to use Jikes.

Any approach like yours will need to be maintained when classes get
added to Ant.
