I haven't tried this from inside ant yet, and haven't hit this specific
problem before but...

I've gotten around other people's calling System.exit() by using a
security policy that won't let them do it. Then, the security exception
bubbles politely out of their code to some point where I can catch it. Not
really in the theme of the java security kit, but is a nice hack.

Hope that helps,
