I am  a little less clear about VM modularity requirements for
developing/debugging etc. Sometimes bugs do cut across the functional pieces
and it is nice to follow around in the debugger. So more input would be
welcome here. But certainly compiling log4cxx etc. make no sense. Also if we
intend to become compatible with a clean modular structure ( OPEN or
whatever ), development modularity would also happen, and a composite HDK
would be nice.
