Agreed.

After reading up on it, it appears that there is no way to set new defaults
for every individual junit test in Eclipse.  So I implemented one
suggestion: instead of environment variables or system properties, the tests
will read a compiler.tests/unittest.properties file with FLEX_HOME and
PLAYERGLOBAL_HOME specified in it.  If you don't have the file or don't
specify the variables, it will default to the compiler/generated/dist/sdk
that copy.sdk would create.
