Exactly!  I'm saying we should leave them like that.

We should copy the hollow stubs to a classpathadapter project tree and
modify those rather than modifying the copies in the classlib project.

Aside: Since classlib is just compiling against these stub, it doesn't
really matter if we modify them to add classpath adapter specific
implementation. But I think it might be confusing to others coming to
implement these kernel classes for a different VM.  So we should keep
them hollow and not make the classpath adapter "special".

Then when we want to use the adapter, we overwrite the hollow stubs in
the deploy directory.  As I said:
