I think I get the idea, but probably this would be solved with
attributes to tasks, much like

<javadoc maxmemory="128m" ... />

which generates -J-mx128m in JDK 1.1 and -J-Xmx128m in JDK >=1.2. 

What I'm trying to say is that the task can detect which platform it
is running on and choose the right arguments itself.

We might get into trouble with <cc> tasks but at the moment we are
still rather Java centric.
