small size comes from deleting all debug information,
renaming private fields, methods and classes to single
letters, removing unneeded constants, and a few
bytecode optimizations. ;)

A JDK 1.1 "profile" of the class library would be
like the whole profile idea anyway. Since some library
code uses 1.2 features like reflection to do its work,
could be painful to create a "pure JDK 1.1" version of
the class libraries. But 1.1 with a few sparks of 1.2
be feasible.

Sounds good enough. Do you have any specific
benchmark in mind? I'll take a look at XSLTMark.
