Do you have an URL ?

I think that most lists of classpath entries will have
only one element, like those for "java/lang/ref/",
"kaffe/io/", etc. (i.e. rt.jar). there shouldn't be
that many packages anyway in a typical classpath. But
talk is cheap and code can be benchmarked, so I'll try
to implement something over the weekend.
