Major improvement from my side will be:
- nightly builds
- more other-developer friendly approach

This would be mayor change. I keep discouraging Adopt to do so. ITW have independent release cycle,
and is able to cooperate with nearly any system JDK. In addition ITW is legacy technlogy, and
putting it into JDK can be security risk.
If somebody will incorporate ITW in his JDK, then it is his choice, and everybody can do what he
wishes with free SW. But it have to be done with clear knowlege of above.
