Wonka implementation status:
  [+] works, tested in a number of real-life situations. Uses async i/o on 
  [-] ugly as hell: hard-coded data structures for 4 serial ports, giant 
switch statements, etc. Uses Wonka Native Interface (WNI), would need porting 
to JNI (but this is not hard).

For a project I'm working on currently it could be interesting to either 
convert the current Wonka implementation to JNI or switch to rxtx. Has anyone 
out there anyhing good or bad to say about rxtx?
