To be fair, I believe this statement is addressing only those who
would otherwise be porting a *Sun* JVM to a platform simply because
Sun has ignored that platform in the past. I do not believe this is
addressing those who would be developing a competitive JVM or a JVM
for some specialty such as real time, orthogonal persistence, etc.
