Give Jeff some credit as I basically "liberated" his ideas.

Add in Ant resolver to retrieve libraries via standard ant build files.

If property is already set then generate a warning or an exception - dont try to chekc if it is valid.

Mark my todo as done.

Add in a resolver task.

The resolver takes an extension and a set of operations that can be

used to get library coresponding to specified extension. The task

will run through each operation until required extension is found.

Removed unused import.

Removed some bogus javadocs that were errors.

Fix javadoc errors.
