Thanks. Which brings a followup question. What is "HotSpot Express"?

The thing I am really after is making sure that the versions of hotspot
that we ship with IcedTea in the various GNU/Linux distributions are
good. We actually have two versions, one from openjdk6 with a couple of
backports from the openjdk7 hotspot repo for crashes found with running
various applications (like eclipse). And one older snapshot of the
hotspot from openjdk7 that is used to base the zero/shark port on. It
would be good if we coordinated on good known stable versions of hotspot
whenever possible.
