+ In Java 2, you can do java -jar jarfile.jar and it looks into the manifest
+ to setup the classpath and main class.  I myself don't like to use this
+ option, but I have run into a fair amount of cases where library developers
+ used it.  You can easily work around it, but it would be a nice-to-have
+ feature.
