I want to add to what Jay wrote, as we were talking about this on IRC a
few minutes ago.
Using Google I found that class is mentioned in one page on java.sun.com:
That class is not listed in the javadoc for java6
It would appear to me this class (and maybe some others?) should not be
in openjdk6 because we intend openjdk6 to pass JCK6. But I don't know
enough of the security end of the platform and clearly I could be mistaken.
