I know but I also replied suggesting that he hold off pending a 
conclusion on the boot JDK issue. If this is pushed then it's the third 
patch in last 24 hours to allow corba build with different versions of 
7uX as the boot JDK. I think would be be better to just get the switch 
over with as it has to happen anyway.
