No idea, but it's an obvious (and easy) approach, which is why I  
described it.  (well, it's obvious for me, because I've been playing  
with JNI lately).  The fact that someone else chose to use it is no  
surprise.  (This is a good example of why I hate software patents)

The reason I said that you might not want to do it this way is  
because it *is* so obvious.  There's probably some subtle technique  
that can be applied that is non-obvious and better.  But the question  
asked for "easy", so that's how I responded.  :-)
