Hi Wolfgang,

Didn't notice it was long awaited, fine.

Well one thing is it comes with a TestRunner of its own that allows it
to be run without forking - thus saving some time. You cannot do this
with junit.textui.TestRunner as it calls System.exit - same reason as
for javadoc.

It can optionally generate a detailed test report in XML to be picked
up by some postprocessor - outside of ant - and is customizable in
its behavior when it comes to test failures (just report the failure,
stop testing, stop the build process).

What makes the patch special is that Thomas refactored larger parts of
Exec and Javac and the code relies on these changes.
