There is some code in Javac that does something similar to emulate the
extension dir mechanism of JDK 1.2+ when using Jikes. The code doesn't
exactly do what Javac does as Javac doesn't care for the extension -
so we don't even need JarFileNameFilter.

Something like this could probably added to Path, you're right. I'm
going to add it to my list and revisit it if nobody gets there faster
than me.
