Really, I do not see a future in which Oracle CAN sufficiently
'free' Java at least through v 1.6 series; and the related
test kit [assuming for the sake of argument that it was
INCLINED to do so]. The upshot of recent LSB calls is that
the 'trial use' of Java will be withdrawn in the upcoming 4.1
refresh, until and unless this future brightens [probably at
least 2-3 years]
