sounds good to me. Just make sure that you can still
compile against Sun's or gcj's class libraries with
your patch applied. For example, some interfaces have
been expanded to include new methods in java 1.4. I'd
still want to be able to use kaffe's javac against
gcj's class library to compile programs using them. So
make sure that rt.jar is append at the end of the
classpath option string.
