That is a good point, so thanks for pointing it out. I have just 
discovered that my copy was installed as part of the 1.8.2 ant-optional 
debian package.

I need to take a long, thoughtful look at junit specifically. The 
situation is particularly tricky because it needs to used consistently:
a) under command-line ant builds for tomcat8, but not necessarily for 
other projects.
b) under the netbeans source editor syntax checker for tomcat8, but not 
for other projects (netbeans ships with its own copy of junit).
c) when building, executing or debugging tomcat8 under netbeans, which 
uses its own copy of ant to run my nb-project.xml targets that, in turn, 
run the tomcat8 ant targets.

I know I currently have some problems in this area, e.g. my own netbeans 
is not intercepting tomcat8's junit results to be graphically presented 
on the workbench.

(I feel there isn't a lot I can learn by looking at the way eclipse 
works, but I hardly ever use it so can't be sure.)

That is good to know. I wanted to ensure this initial release of 
netbeans support did not have any nasty style problems that might be 
carried forward into future changes. (e.g. I wondered whether this might 
be an svn property issue.) I will stop worrying!
