Not a lot to it, no doc or much for build, but a jar and dylib that appear to still work if I reset resources.jar to cause the AppleScript JSR 223 interface to be missing.

So, if you have problems with OS X java and the AppleScript interface before a fix is in place and don't want to mess with modifying the JDK/JRE resources.jar, then you might want to look at this.
Again, I'm assuming the classpath exception lets me get away with having this stuff for distribution.
