Nice; shouldn't this be done for other tasks referring to JDK tools as well?
E.g. CommandlineJava.<init> just sets the VM to "java" but maybe
"${java.home}/../bin/java" and "${java.home}/bin/java" could be considered as
candidates, so that <java fork="true"> would work for anyone running a JDK,
with or without it in their path.
