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.
