It's not working yet.  We don't even have "hello world" -- though this requires quite a 
bit of correctness already.  We're getting there, and it shouldn't be much longer.

Also, I'm not sure about how to do collaboration prior to it being merged into the 
mainline.  There might be IP issues (from our side, not Sun's).  I will try to get that 
figured out.  But I thought people would be interested in a heads up.
