Seems like with Mercurial it doesn't really matter that much if we go
the centralized approach of having one trunk from which the release
branches are cloned or if the next development branch is cloned from the
current release. The effect should be the same for all purposes.

What about 'classlibs' for the class libs, rather than jdk?
