Big +1 from me. 

I'd like to see a solution for all these cases where you might have a
couple of alternative implementations for some kind of
functionality. jar/fastjar, rmic/jiffy, the various idl2java
implementations ...

Unfortunately I have no idea how to handle this cleanly. Creating a
base class with a bloated set of attributes (everything any
implementation might need) or something like

<javac ...>
  <jikes emacs="yes" pedantic="no" />

which would ignore the nested jikes element unless we actually want to
use jikes?

Both are possible and I'm not too thrilled by either of each.
