It used to be used for that, yes.  But this part of its functionality
is no longer needed in Ant 1.6 as we've dropped JDK 1.1 compatibility.

If only I knew 8-)

One thing that looks as if it was changing is that Ant's classes
themselves will be loaded by a classloader that is not the system
classloader.  I don't think it is going to affect your doing, but I'm
not 100% sure.

The other thing is that you may be able to simplify things when you
know you don't have to care about 1.1 compatibilty.
