That would be really nice to have. Given that kaffe's current class laoder
doesn't do any certificate processing either, AFAIK, that's better than nothing

the 'quite' came from my memory, but it turns out the improvement was not that
exciting. it now throws an exception during loading at a later point.

that's further than with current kaffe, though there is some nasty problem with
resource loading. I'm using the ResourceBundle implementation from GNU
Classpath here.

The patch essentially rips out parts of kaffe's class library and replaces them
by Classpath's implementation. It's not polished, and definitely won't go in in
that form, since I haven't really looked at Classpath's implementation of the
classes I replaced. The patch also irresponsibly fakes a few things, like stack
trace elements. It's an ugly hack and by no means supposed to be used other
than a demonstration of 'we can get a bit further loading tomcat using some
bits from classpath'. That being said, it's attached.
