I see.  They are working on it though, IIRC (I keep an eye on their dev
list.)

But until then, you're right - lest just go with each of us building it
if we need to and dropping into depends/jars or something, in a way
similar to how mx4j, xerces, xalan and other dependencies (and
eventually nudge them to create a snapshot).

I was assuming that for the simplest zero-th order integration, we'd do
what we do now w/ MX4J - have a jar somewhere and eventually gets moved
into jre/lib/boot/yoko-M1/ and an appropriate entry in
bootclasspath.properties.

We'll probably need some kind of glue for startup/initialization?

Does that make any sense?
