I can't say I like this all that much as well. I currently using the old 
xmlcatalog code. The -D parameters are much easier to integrate in ant 
as ant gives the absolute path. Not sure what the optimal way is but 
maybe it could be a combination. Perhaps a default location related to 
the jar file could be imposed so the extra classpath entry doesn't have 
to be added for the config file location as this is a bit 
counter-intuitive. Maybe look for -D and if none exist then use the 
config file if found.

I also have some code for the path stuff for the config file that could 
be useful. It's a bit of a hack but at least would be good for some ideas.

p.s. any status on freeing the software source?
