My concern is that there are a number of platform specific changes being 
made to java.* and javax.* classes (there are changes to sun.* as well 
but that is less of a concern).


I would hope that we could find a way to not have to make platform 
specific changes to such classes, and we need to be sure that the 
proposed changes do not impact other platforms either in terms of 
functionality or performance.
