Users would definitely appreciate your contribution!

Unfortunately Jeff is on vacation, will be back June 6 if I remember 
right. So all I know is what he posted to Jira.

Or maybe open a sub task and submit a patch to that?

My guess is there are additional things to watch out for; for example, 
updating the tests to reflect the changed messages so derbyall passes. 
Also, I don't know what gotchas might be out in the locale files -- 
would be another thing to follow up on. Anything else, derby developers?

In my opinion, the docs (including any doc patches submitted) should be 
changed to match the code.
