You're right, there were several concerns about some areas of the code 
when jdk7u-osx was setup. One was the launcher and that has since been 
sorted out by Kumar, another was the jnilib support, which has been 
temporarily removed pending a cleaner implementation. I think it's worth 
compiling an updated list of things that should be cleaned up although 
from a stability point of view then some of them may be work for jdk8 
rather than 7u.
