No promises heard, no expectations understood. :-)
I personally have a hard time following the argument that says that "because
we put them into our source repository, we're asserting some kind of legal
license ownership" or something, but hey, I'm not a lawyer, either. :-/
Here's a Really Dumb Question(TM): Is it possible (and then, is it
practical) to create a build that doesn't use any of the binary plugs stuff?
A stripped-down, JVM-and-core-classes-only kind of build that just uses the
core stuff that's out in the Sun-blessed open source domain? (I haven't
found that I cared about any of the binary plugs-related stuff yet, so...)
