Essentially, that's what I'd like to see. However, I wish it were expanded a
bit to allow for auto-includes of varying scope:

  o System-wide auto-included jars
  o User-specific auto-included jars (ie, "$JAVA_USER_LIBS" env var or
  o Project and/or directory specific jars (ie, "$JAVA_PROJ_LIBS")

With them all appended to the classpath in reverse order (so that the
project-specific ones pre-empt the user-specific ones which pre-empt the
system-wide ones.
