Hi Alan

I had a look at the j.u.l part of the fix - test included, and that
looks fine. I am glad to see these go :-)

I applaud at doing this early in JDK 9 - hopefully we will get feedback
early if some kind of replacement appears to be needed.

Wahou. Debeaning - I didn't know about that :-) - don't count me as
reviewer for these :-)
