ok, i didn't finish all the code necessary, but i remember there are
only smaller chunks left to write.

I think this would work; i contributed a few lines code before with
the help of the commons people in here. I think Mario (VFS) may also
be interested in this.

Yes, we could, but as far as i understood people didn't want to use
this sun-specific packages and implemented these classes themself

own packages, so one can rely on those you mentioned with writing some
kind of plugin.
