This makes sense... maybe each package would make a file with a list of
classpath dependencies:


...and then those files could be used for generating CLASSPATH at login time,
and the build scripts could also regenerate it just before building any new
package so that CLASSPATH would always be up-to-date when building new java

I agree, that would solve it...
