I took a look at the refactored Javac.  The Jikes plugin was incomplete,
and I commented on that here.  Had that work been complete, I would have
gladly folded it in.

Not exactly, I really want the ability to control the order *outside* of
the build.xml file.

What "only" means that I know what I'm doing and I do *not* want any of the
jars that people may have checked in to interfere with my wishes.

For a use case - take a look at

Every single last one of those builds was done with an Ant built from
bootstrap.  In fact, if a project depends on another project, and I'm
building both, then the version used by the first is the version that I
built from source.

Some of the build failures (e.g. Alexandria) are because I haven't done the
same with the Java task yet.
