<Junit> task in implicitly assumes that you can
run all tests in single JVM instance. Though it does provide
fork-mode to run tests in separate JVM processes, it still
does not allow per-test JVM args configuration.

Which is exactly what we need for JVMTI tests, as most of the
test has their own special agent to be run with.

Nevertheless, we could use junit task with some benefit
in creating test reports. I think this can be accomodated
in Gregory's scheme by using <junit> task instead of <java> task.

The most of the ant mechanics (selecting tests and looping
over them for compilation and running) will be there
no matter what we use for test running, <junit> or <java>.
