Well, I have started fiddling with it, and it doesn't look good.  In order to
compile, it seems to want access to Swing and JavaCC, both of which (to m
knowledge) are non-redistributable.  Is there a free Swing out there anywhere?

I have been able to get it running under Debian (minus the Swing components)
using the precompiled class files (JavaCC is only needed at compile-time).  Is
it acceptable to use the upstream binary tarball as the .orig for a Debian
source package, as it is architecture-independent?  Or must it compile from the
Java source?
