I myself am afraid of native code. The healthiest would be to have the
required native code included and maintained from inside the JDK but I
suppose that's not going to happen. That's why I see all native code going
into an optional VFS package.

I'd say, lets go to 1.1 - there are some bugs/todos before starting new

Yes, we had a basic requirement for displaying operations progress and allow
interruptions (pause and cancellation). If you think we could donate the
code we already have to VFS as a starting point in the development of this

I think we can collaborate with JDIC project because they have native
development expertise on Windows and I think that on MacOS X too.
