Better logging when developer specifies a non existent source directory

      When I make a typo in a source directory, like:
      D:/dev/work/idea9/parleys/web-html5/src/main/jav (notice the missing 'a' at the end)

      I don't get a message suggesting I made an error, but ExtScript fails silently by not reloading the classes in this directory.

      There is a javac message in the log:
      INFO: [EXT-SCRITPING] starting class dependency scan
      18-apr-2010 16:53:24 compile
      INFO: [EXT-SCRIPTING] Doing a full recompile
      javacTask: no source files
      Usage: javacTask <options> <source files>
      use -help for a list of possible options

      But it's easy to miss it because MyFaces and other frameworks also emit a lot of logging. Something heavier (ERROR level or maybe an initializer exception) might be better, so the user won't get confused/angry.

      I think such a check is even more appropriate because file paths in Java are always error-prone (I always make mistakes with paths)...
