I believe that it was never our intention that the java API should be 
encumbered in a way that raises these issues and certainly not our 
intention that people would have to type in the code from the javadoc 
in order to circumvent the issues.

My understanding was that we have already resolved this internally 
(and hence why we are offering help in implementing the APIs), but I 
will double check.
