After reading Stefan's and Jose's arguments, I'm -1 on this as well.  It
strikes me that <depends> is intended to make up for a lack in javac; if
other compilers manage dependancy checking well on their own, why should
we attempt to fix something that isn't necessarily broken with every
invocation of the compiler by default?

-1  We can do all of this right now using property files and antcall, as
has been demonstrated by Stefan and Peter.
