Hi Guilhem,

legal2.java did not compile.

Found 1 semantic error compiling "legal2.java":

     7.                 legal1.A a = legal1.getA();
*** Semantic Error: Type "legal1$A" was not found.

So I moved legal2.java to a/legal2.java and changed
"import a.*" to "package a". Is it OK?

Yes, running legal2 causes IllegalAccessError.

But after applying my patch, legal2 prints this:

$ kaffe -classpath . a.legal2

We may as well do so to make things simple.
