Cool. I released 0.9.4 with your bugfix and the constant-field fix, so 
you should be able to improve the score significantly (at least back up 
to 67.7) by using this version. Kaffe people take note also, your 
results will suffer unless you generate your japi files with the new 
version :)

Hmm. If the Classpath project officially recommends one source for 
javax.xml, it seems like it would be misrepresenting the project if we 
created a classpath.japi using something else. I'm not sure how official 
the recommendation of JAXP is. Mark?

Dalibor, Kaffe builds Tritonus entirely with free tools, right?

Yeah, I'd love to see that huge red org.omg section disappear :)

Yes, a quick zdiff confirmed that the jdk japis were definitely changed 
by the fix :)
