Subject [RT] Java as a dependency

With the recent announcement from Sun regarding J2SE snapshots, it 
occurred to me that it would be possible to create an ant task that 
could fetch the tarball from Sun's server, install it and potentially 
pass the path back to Gump.  There are social and legal issues (such as 
how to handle licensing issues), but it is technically feasible (if a 
bit messy).  Likewise, it would be possible to do something similar for 
previous releases, jikes, gcj and so on.

Not sure where to go with this - perhaps just an interesting observation.
