Unless I'm completely misunderstanding, that's not what is being
proposed. What is being proposed is refactoring code that's currently
duplicated across the JVM & JDK into a common library. Such a library
would be a standard Java component, not non-standard and not
third-party. I can't see what the problem is, to be honest.
