Hmmm .. the indemnity clause is still there, though a bit lighter that 
the one I had major issues with.

And openjdk is close ... I think we should wait since we will be 
supporting it for 5 more years, whatever we do.  Open GPL'ed software is 
a much better approach I think.

Sorry for getting everyone's hopes up for 30 minutes
