That sounds like the likely winner at this point. I am, however, 
stupified that there's no way to do the equivalent of:

	import sys; sys.path.append("path/to/my/jar")

in ant. Maybe if we had an ant-compiler...or not. At least it's only 
complaining about a FEW more errors on Linux than on OS X at this 
point. Inexplicably, it still works.
