Makes sense. And in fact, I expect that we'll have binary plugs in the
OpenJDK style once we get a bit more of the platform moved into the
open. But right now this seemed to get us going the fastest.

Yes, I do. This is another thing we've talked about but just aren't
ready with. I'm hoping to get a wiki set up that can be used for this
sort of documentation. I'm in negotiations with the folks who control
the OpenJDK infrastructure but I don't have any resolution yet. And of
course we will have to write a lot of that documentation. That's not
always high on our list when products need to be shipped. :-)
Again, we know this is rough at the moment but we expect it to improve
rapidly. Our philosophy was to get the code out fast and then evolve
the project as a community rather than make everything smooth from day
one. We'll see whether or not that was a good idea.
