I think the whole 'internal' thing is just awful IMO. (Man, it feels 
good to stay that...)

Why do we need it?  Eclipse?  OSGi?

Isn't it pre-supposing a packaging system in the source code structur? 
(one that I think is pretty unnatural for java programmers....)

I'm 100% behind offering the Harmony classlibs packaged for OSGi, but 
I'm 100% against assuming it's the only way to go...
