As followup to #140, this adds the commonly used main attributes to jar manifest by default. One can override packageOptions as usual to modify this.

Other build tools also injects the tool and JVM details in the jar manifest as so.
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.8.1
Created-By: 1.5.0_22-b03 (Sun Microsystems Inc.).

I have skipped them as I am not sure about their practicality apart from
cosmetic 'fingerprinting' the jar. I can put them in if Mark opines in favor.
