If you want to do that, I'd say go ahead.  It would be good if you could
avoid downloading Ant since I often want to build an Antlib against
Ant's core (maybe even with uncommitted changes) rather than any
downloadable version.

Works fine for me and Gump, but both of us make sure the real Xerces
(and the real Xalan) will be used rather than the Sun labeled versions.
That being said, I don't think I play any tricks on the OpenJDK
installations that I use on Linux.  May be an issue with the XML parser
in the Sun VM.
