Open Source Java is already splitted. Remember Japhar project.

A better solution would be to ask Tim not to add M$ extensions to the
GPL'ed Kaffe. Adding them to the "Custom Edition" would be Ok.

Transvirtual Technologies have made very much for Kaffe. The fork would be
a justified and decent solution only Transvirtual Technologies insists
on adding M$ extentions to the GPL'ed Kaffe. IMHO.
