thanks for the links. GNU Classpath actually has
implementations for the new assertion handling
methods, so it might be possible to merge them in.
I've played around with a simple JDK 1.4.1_01 javac
compiled file with assertions and they've bumped up
the number even furthe ;) It's 48/0. Do you know any
site that has information on different revisions of
the Java Class file format? I've browsed the JDK docs,
but I couldn't find anything.
