No, in fact this would be great. I'd like to get Zero/Shark in the
IcedTea forest for 7 rather than having to maintain them as patches
and this will make it more feasible.

I thought we'd already dropped some of it and we did say we would
after 1.4. Make sure to update the patch list
(http://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki/IcedTea_JDK6_Patches) for those you
removed (I already highlighted a few).
