I agree. I have explicitly _not_ used such words as "crap" though. The
problem is that kaffe (specifically - I haven't tried sablevm) has never been
at a stage where I could use if for my own applications. If I can't use it
_at all_ it's hard to get involved to the point where I could even do 1 & 2,
let alone 3. And for the record, I wasn't "going on ranting" - Michael asked
for specific details and I told him I couldn't give any because kaffe had
never been usable for me.
