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 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.
