I plan on posting a proposal for the bootstrapper on ant-dev in the coming
weeks. The commons-daemon bootstrapper is actually overkill for Ant. Instead, I
would limit the bootstrapper to the following:

1. reading a properties file in Ant's bin directory and pushing those properties
   into system properties

2. constructing the Ant classpath in a classloader, classloading Ant's Main
   class, and then invoking Main.main() via reflection.

In essence, item 1 moves all of the Jikes, Cyghome, etc. system properties from
the script into the bootstrapper and item 2 moves all of the classpath setting
from the script into the bootstrapper.

By moving script code into Java code, Ant will be able to handle spaces in paths
and classpaths/system properties of arbitrary length. The bootstrapper always
gives Windows 95, 98, and ME support without having to set %ANT_HOME%.
