Unfortuantely by downloading Sun's source code you can no longer
contribute to Kaffe since this would violate our clean-room.  It's a
great pity - Sun provides source code and everyone who agrees to the
wonderful Community Source License instantly stops them working on
anyone elses Java implementations, either a freeware project such as
Kaffe or on a commerical one.
