Just a humble suggestion.  Under *NIX the 'which' command is used for finding
the binary that would be executed if you were to execute the given command.

Ex:

%shell%> which ls
/bin/ls

I would suggest renaming this to something more descriptive, maybe WhichEnv.  I
do realize it is in a package though.  I usually re-alias my java commands to
become the classname minus the package, therefore which and Which would get
confusing :)
