Hi Stephen and list,

I don't know if that still holds now, but a couple of months ago I 
noticed that T_SPLITR generic parameter seems to be redundant. All 
current JDK code can be modified to cope without it:

I can check if that still holds now. Even if it does, a question remains 
if the parameter was introduced for some other reason...
