I'm a lttle worried about the stability of the resulting hotspot.
It appears that the most stable hotspots are obtained by
getting the hotspot versions that are targetting proprietary
6uN releases, with selected later bug fixes added on top.
Recently, this means even-numbered hotspots.

So I was expecting that we would upgrade openjdk6
to hotspot18 sometime within the next 6 months or so,
skipping hotspot17 entirely.

Perhaps someone from hotspot-land could give us
more guidance.
