Well, the best effect of Guillaume's setup IMHO is that you can define
these env vars once, override them only in the confs you care about, and
everything will still work. Plus it makes maintenance easier.

How about letting Guillaume change the env vars used by ant script
internally so that they match jpackages, and convert old ant env vars to
new ones ar script start if rpmmode=false ?

This way everyone is happy, our script codes are closer and backwards
compatibility is saved. (I won't do it myself since I think Guillaume
groks better the puprose of the env vars jpackage uses)

(btw I think there was a huge time lag on some of your answers, sorry if
I was late replying:(
