Agreed. I'd like Peter's thoughts too as he is involved with most of the major 
changes, especially antlib.

The Main entry point is still valid and will remain so. Gump doesn't have to 
change, although it would be good to have that wide testing. Is Gump running 
on any Windows boxes? I wonder if it would have issues with the line lengths 
that may result.

I would like to add some more capability to the launcher to look in different 
library locations. I have added the ability to use a location relative to the 
user's home dir. This lets a single Ant install be used with per-user lib 
configurations. Currently the location is fixed and there is only one.
