It doesn't seem so. The SSL code has been in Tomcat versions 4.1.x to 
5.5.9 and I just saw that also the LDAP code in Tomcat 5.5.9 uses 
classes in com.sun.

How do you distinguish "kernel code" and "non-kernel code"? From the VM 
point of view, the classes in the java(x).* packages do not differ from 
user code classes and it is also possible to bootstrap the VM and 
replace java(x).* classes with own implementations. Been there, done that.
