If my build process download Rhino first and then setup/update the
build to use it, could I use it.
If so, should we rename Rhino classname and patch OpenJDK sources to
use these new classes ?
Or use rename them like JDJ7u1 do, ie org/mozilla/classfile ->
I notice Oracle JDK7 preview still didn't include them.
JDK7u1 include them :

What's the status about this ?
