Subject Re: What should I set JAVA_HOME to

Hm, reading this patch, it seems a little convoluted.  If you still have 
to set the jdk16 property, what's the value of setting JAVA_HOME to a 
1.6 directory?  What does it buy me?  Perhaps we should explain, because 
reading it as it is, I tend to ask "why would I want to do that?"
