Yes, but you probably understand that's not intentional.

If you've been following, that argument is still happening.  Once that's
fixed, we go back.  The intention is to go to harmony launcher.

Yep.  Like the (@)#!@#! launcher.

I left the Hello :)  Figure it's easy for someone to then type java -cp
. Hello

but yes, that goes.

yep, but that's a larger issue in itself, isn't it... :)

Right - I need to ditch the batch, I think.

Thanks for the feedback.

The purpose here was to sew together Frankenstein's Monster, and iterate
from there.

I'll do another iteration, the big problem being the hdk in the jre (I
know that problem - did that dance on linux as well...) and getting rid
of obvious user-distractions like java.bat.  I'll trim out hello also.

Launcher will be fixed Real Soon Now as soon now as that's in progress,
and we have to fix the dual jni.h problem.  I'll make a separate
directory in root of JRE for eclipse plugin.
