Yes, but there are other similar errors to fix and a real failure in the
JUnit test RhinoScriptTest.

Likely we could develop some sort of property expansion mechanism for
the work and jar entries of the gump descriptors.
What I do not know is how we can teach a python program what is the
value of ${} in java on any arbitrary operating system.
Can we use jython from the python runtime of gump ? Does jython know the
java env vars ?
This would be more a topic for the gump ML anyway.
