Has always been that way.  This is the only way to run javac in Ant's
VM which is a major speed improvement - well, if your compilation
itself is fast, that is.

We can do that, but prefer to do things in VM.  Sometimes we even get
more control that way, we can pass streams that write directly to
Ant's logging system instead of capturing stderr, for example.

Like I said, even Ant 1.1 invoked javac that way.
