So what's the point? If all you're trying to do is duplicate J2SE 5, 
what advantage is there to making it an open source project? As soon as 
you "improve" something, aren't you're likely to break the API?

Is this really an attempt to get Sun to open source Java?

I'm not trying to be critical or anything. Just wondering what's the 
point?
