Harmony is going to create a full, certified implementation of J2SE. 
Right now, we're on our way to having a JVM and a class library.  Great.

Many of us are also interested in ensuring that stuff is reusable.  If 
we have a great VM that people - on their own - wish to take and use 
with Classpath, I say more power to them.  Similarly, if someone wishes 
to take our classlibrary and use it with Kaffe, have at it.

We want ubiquitous, open Java, and interchangeable parts is a step in 
that direction.

Now lets get back to APR...
