There is no USD 10**9 to be made in attacking Kaffe, afaict. ;)
I believe that software patents are a bad, bad thing, so this gives us
in the EU one more reason to lobby our european parliament members to
not allow that sort of legal phantasies into the EU legal framework. I
hope Sun will manage to kill the patents in question on appeal, but the
whole legal process has just started to roll and it's hard to predict
where the roulette ball will land in the end.
