I'd wait on HS16 until it's closer to being shipped with Sun JDK 6
Update 18. I expect that we'll likely have the last build of HS16 for
6u18 sometime before Thanksgiving - that version is likely the best
version to import into OpenJDK6 and do modifications to. (it should
be hs16 build 12 or 13, we're on 11 right now).
