Given andy's post here, I should re-phrase my own wording:

Naturally we want our code to be modified! We're hoping on lots of
improvements coming from the Harmony project. We just would prefer if
Harmony wouldn't have their own source tree. 

Currently a lot of class library fixes are being contributed to libgcj,
and syncing these is a lot of extra work. Dalibor has plenty of work
merging Classpath changes into Kaffe too. 

So it'd mean less work for everybody if Classpath was a single jar and
changes could go directly into our tree.
