Yes.  I undid it when we were using the jsr14 hack which didn't work on
with ecj - at the time I think it might now.

I think we should move forward to use the ecj since it has a cleaner
classpath when doing compiles which helps us spot bugs earlier.  I'll
take a look at making sure the linux build machine is able to build with
ecj today.  (The windows build machine is broken - I need to move stuff
around since it is falling over the windows path length issues.)
