Because when I wrote the original version, I authored it on my windoze
laptop.. I haven't had to bootstrap it since...

A nice trick that I use: Instead of using the ant.jar out of jakarta-tools,
I've got a version that sits in my ~/jars dir and a ~/bin/ant shell script
file that basically fires up ant. Therefore, instead of executing `% build`
I execute `% ant`. Ever since I did that, I haven't had to do a full
bootstrap from nada.
