The mercurial history of openjdk6 is sadly incomplete,
even when compared to openjdk7.

But going forward, we have hg in place, and
anyone who is managing a downstream release
probably should be examining recent changesets
anyways.  Humans are flaky; hg is going to
be a more reliable source of what's gone in.
