    Description

      We've broken our golden rule in SetupJavaCompilation, that all command lines should be copy/paste:able to re-execute them from the command line. The reason is that the file containing the source code file names has a temporary name, which is renamed after the compilation. This is just a messy way to use the file both as input to javac and as a marker that the compilation has succeeded. By splitting up these two roles, we get more readable code and a re-executable command line.
