I didn't know that.  Cool!

What I would like to see is if there is general agreement on the course of
action.  The todos as I see it are:

1) add a xerces target to ant's build.xml which will build a minimal
xml.jar (i.e., excluding everything that is not required).  This target
will not be a dependency of main.

2) modify ant (and presumably Tomcat) to use javax.xml.parsers

3) replace xml.jar found in ant with this version for bootstraping
