For what my opinion is worth (on a good day, a cup of coffee, but not at Caffè 
Florian), this would be an excellent thing to have. It will never be easy to 
work on the core Java APIs in a totally modular way (because Sun didn't 
design things that way), but with such a set of stubs one could at least work 
on a group of classes in isolation and be able to compile them to bytecode. 
Furthermore the stubs can readily be used for white-box testing during 
development, by simply adding println()s. Go for it!
