didnt know there were any, but it doenst surprise me

I'll delegate assessment of the path to people who understand those bits of
the code, but you should know that for ant1.6 we want to move to
classloading stuff ourselves instead of faffing around with doing the jar
file setup in the bat files, as we get far too many support calls related to
those few lines of text.

Integration of what ant1.6 does with your needs for Gump would seem good,
plus any problems you've worked around are things we also need to deal with.
i.e we dont necessarily need two launcher classes...
