Subject Re: Sun classes imported by Derby code

Thanks, Knut. This is very helpful. I think you're right that it ought 
to be ok to compile the taglets against the current environment since

1) that's the environment which will be used to generate the javadoc
2) the base taglet classes had better be present in that environment or 
javadoc-generation will fall over
