What is up with people setting CLASSPATH?

I have seen a zillion complaints on Slashdot about hassles setting the CLASSPATH environment variable. Setting CLASSPATH is a bad thing to do, period. I have many Java utilities that I run (wsdltojava, zeus, etc.) and I always simply use startup scripts that set the classpath on the command line.

Just out of curiosity: if anyone can think of a good use of setting CLASSPATH, email me.
