So I've heard mutterings that there's discussions with FSF to make
it easier for OpenJDK to take code from classpath.
I hadn't really understood how that could work, and what it meant,
but now I think it does not mean *any* code from classpath, but
rather something that makes this 'dance' have less moves?
ie it will not mean any code from classpath, rather just specific
code that the original author wants to use under grantback.
Is that about right?
