I am not sure if we need to have per-task cp because if they need different
cp then shouldn't they be separate .tsks ? One thing I would like to see is
manifest ebntries such as 

Ant-Classpath: ${java.home}/lib/tools.jar ${ant.home}/lib/jaxp.jar

Where variables are interpreted in manifest at load time. Then we can throw
away most (if not all) issues I can think of. Thoughts ?
