It will become part of the build once it is as-good-as done.

I'm trying to do a balancing act between /not/ dumping my junk into SVN
as I go along, and developing in the open | collaboratively.
Suggestions for re-balancing are more than welcome.

The file ecj_3.2RC5.jar is the exact binary download from eclipse.org
(renamed from their generic ecj.jar).  Prefixing with harmony_ probably
isn't appropriate, but I could pick-up the first ecj_*.jar that I find.
