I think a compiler should be pretty close to last on the priority list.
There are plenty of Java compilers, including an open-source one (I'm
thinking of the Eclipse compiler, fwiw).  The runtime (JVM / 
Class-Library) is, IMHO, the main thing we need, followed by misc
tools like keytool and rmic, etc.


Just my $00.02 worth..
