Cool that you care for our todo list - it was terribly short and I was
afraid becoming bored at the workshop. ;-)

I'd suggest you add this to "Personal Agendas" on our Wiki page[1] as
"External wishlist" or so to have some recording.  We should finally
work this down later if we will not manage it here.

I'm no Java expert at all but I just created a clone.  One Olivier might
show up here I'll bother him with questions - he helped me a lot with
Java issues in the past.  I did some Java packages in the last weeks
(just ITPed some additional two) and I'm now in a status where I'm at
least able to work around some simple issues.

I'll keep you updated.
