Ant has done this for a while, the doc does include this info
and src/script/ant has been modified to fit into jpackage since
I think ant 1.4?.

I would like to ensure that the doc we do provide is correct
and that src/script/ant is good both from a jpackage angle
and from a user that wants to install ant. At the moment,
most people do not know that the ant that is installed
in for example fedora core x, is not the same as ant from and are bemused when they install a new version of
ant from and find that this new version is ignored
by src/script/ant (/etc/ant.conf) overrides it.

jpackage is seen by a lot of linux people as the official
version of various java packages. (at least according to
the linux guru at my previous company). I would like
to ensure that the version that jpackage has is the
same (or as least the same as far as it is possible)
as the version we release.
