See HARMONY-471.  This JIRA was the first part of my trying to replace
the rmi stubs with the contents of modules/rmi2.  It is incomplete
because the tests still need to be moved - and updated. modules/rmi2
should probably go away once the migration of tests is completed.

Incidentally, don't read too much in to the names rmi, rmi2, rmi3.
The main reason I didn't do the changes in place in the rmi2 tree was
because of the difficulty of creating a patches/recipes for the moves
and creation of new files.  Specifically, you can't easily do "svn move
blah blah.old" and then add a new blah with "svn add blah" without doing
a commit in between.

The above JIRA also introduce an ant variable, hy.rmi.module, that
allows an rmi implementation to be selected at build time - using
"ant -Dhy.rmi.module=rmi3".  I hope that this will allow several
implementations to co-exist and be easily evaluated.  It may be that in
order to take the best from both contributions a third implementation
will be developed.  The mechanism I put in place should allow for this.

Unless someone beats me too it, I will try to construct a JIRA that
integrates the modules/rmi3 tree.  (I might try to do this one without
moving to yet another new directory tree and confusing people even
more.)

Regards,
 Mark.
