I've created a bunch of patches to fix these issues.

There are other cosmetic differences that JDiff reports that aren't 
important, such as in which class .equals() is implemented. Since this 
is one of the key methods inherited by Object, it doesn't actually 
matter in which class it is defined provided that it works.

The other differences are duplicate references to interface methods 
(Multipart includes all the methods in Part, even though it's a 
subtype) and synchronzied/non-synchronized methods; only the 
implementations that need synchronized have them.
