Even if it did, this wouldn't help as some VMs (JDK 1.3 for example)
scan CLASSPATH at startup (dropping all entries that do not exist at
startup) and won't recognize any changes to that property.

The only way to do what you want, is to define a path and use
classpath references to this path in all tasks that support it - and
add classpath elements to all tasks that don't support it but should 8-)
