Not to mention that the IO layer is not covered with SCSL license,
and that there is no need to have platform-specific JNI code ;)

Of course, the current code covers more then standard Java API does,
like sendfile, shared memory, unix domain sockets, NT pipes, etc,
but that doesn't mean it's 'mandatory'.

If you remember, I spoke about developing classpath with APR as OS
abstraction layer, from Harmony start-up :)
