What happened in January was some people talked about difficulties
that *might* arise *if* they tried to make Zero work on HPPA.

To actually make Zero work on HPPA what needs to happen is that
somebody with a machine needs to grab a copy of OpenJDK and try
to build and run it.

I'm available by email and on #openjdk to help people with any
issues they have with Zero and Shark on any platform.
