I really didn't want to fire up this discussion again.

My point (you can make that your data point 2 Jon) is that right now
I'll have to remove junit.jar every time I've done a cvs update (or
install a separate version of Ant) if I want to participate in JUnit
development - just to be sure the "right" JUnit classes get picked up
when I build a development version of JUnit using Ant.

The same probably holds true for other projects (say you'd want to
include BSF for example). Including the JARs in builds and maybe even
in nightly builds would be enough IMHO - but as I said, I didn't want
to start that discussion again, just add my opinion as I didn't have
the opportunity to speak up before.
