You can always try to propose the changes you want to see, and if it
fails, of course provided you follow the License (GPL + Classpath
Exception), you can take, modify and redistribute the sources as you
see fit.

Btw, as a general note, I always find discussing about how impossible
any contribution is *without* first trying to contribute anything a
real waste of time.
