I think that there can be times when something is extremely cross-area
and that makes it more of a pain if it can't easily be divided up.
But I completely agree that running the right tests is a vital part of
sure there are no problems. I don't know if that would have happened any
faster in this case.
But so is the review. Code changes that cross areas should also be
review by the relevant teams. Some times that might save pain down
the line. So if you change awt code, send the review to the AWT team (etc).
I expect core libs would like to know if I decided to change something
in java.util :-)
