Subject Re: specs and javadoc question

Hi All,

Thanks for the comments.

Dain: Yeah its not copying out of the pdf but simply typing, hardly  
feels like original work though so even though I'm not copying, it  
sure feels like it. :-)

I'll leave the comments out and post a patch after I get one more  
pass over it (~early next week).
