This is why its called "javadoc2" and not "javadoc". Consider this a
quick hack to come up with some javadoc to make the distribution. We are
looking for a portable way of doing this but it's not that easy given
the differences in the two javadocs.

Currently, you could write your own javadoc task to do it, but I agree
there should be a <javadoc> method that takes care of everything for
you, simply ignoring the things that can't handle on that platform
(maybe signaling it with a warning or something).

Please, consider moving this discussion on the mail list where it is more appropriate.
