I am aware of that fact; the JRun back end is the example. I have not yet
committed some changes which move this to the compiler...whateever compiler
you have is the source of a mangler.

One thing I am unsure about is how to to do dir naming? Should that be the
responsibility of javac or do implementations want to override?

It may actually be simplest to have the back end implementation take the
patterns and sort it out themselves (the default implementation will be

Also, I am minding towards making uriroot a requirement so we can handle
