Finished reading the patches, the bug reports and the e-mails. I like the idea of putting these very old bug reports behind us. Moving in small patches seems also very good as the dependency issues of different JREs, JVMs, SDK, etc will be a tough issue to agree upon (I for once find the idea of shipping only one JRE to be a mistake). Aside from the fact that another pair of eyes went through the whole thing, I found a typo: if you search the FOSDEM patch for the following string: "and shipped in a separately from the original jar file" you can fix it (most probably something like "and shipped separately from the original jar file"). Good work! P.
