The I guess the statement should rather be:

- code in ASF SVN repository can "import" from classpath jars.

i.e. s/Java//, because the only hooks caring about license dissonance
would be those from the VMs (which could be written in a number of
languages) and classpath itself. The VMs could be written in a number of
languages, including C# or java itself (IBM had such a beastie, IIRC).

Which lends to a natural proposal: put the native code hooks in
Classpath into a BSDish or PD license, and we have a nice interface for
different groups (JVM writers, java library writers) to write to,
meeting there from both directions if needed. WDYT?

archives yet, which could make this idea completely redundant. Sorry if
