worth evaluating for 1.0 if not already fixed. This would probably sort out those XSLT problems

Environment: Linux, jsdk 1.4.0-01

The specific problem is with trying to define a junit taskdef in maven.xml. The classloader
doesn't get the junit jar into the classpath because we haven't invoked anything in the test
plugin which "owns" that jarfile (even though project.xml requsts junit*jar to be in the root

To quote from a conversation between myself and Bob:
(10:29:51) bob: so, to boil it down...
(10:30:08) bob: a taskdef in maven.xml can't get its own jar loaded into [root] like the plugins
(10:30:32) jcej: Even though project.xml specifies the jar *and* does the <properties>
thing to stuff it into [root]
(10:30:34) bob: a project's project.xml should be inspected, just like plugins' project.xml,
to find extra jars to put in the forehead loader.
(10:30:41) jcej: Exactly.
(10:30:47) bob: so, the bug is we ignore the project's <properties> stuff.
(10:30:53) jcej: Apparently.
