Agreed, though deep down I expect that we'll end up creating a JAR that
implements a small set of impl types -- for example, lots of 1.4 apps
seem to use sun.io.CharToByteConverter and friends before the
functionality went into 5.0.  But I'd make it a separate download,
called losers.jar.

Taking the moral high ground doesn't help if the application is flat on
it's back.  Where such apps comes from a responsive group we should be
bringing it to their attention.

Tim
