I don't have numbers, but Sun, BEA, IBM  have millions of users that
depend on those codebases for the life of their business.

I've never heard of anyone using kaffe+classpath for the life of their
business.

Now, that's not intended to disparage Kaffe or Classpath, as I realize
that like Harmony, they aren't done,  but I was simply responding to the
comparison of the approach to this issue that Sun, IBM and BEA take vs
Kaffe/GNUCLasspath.

While the point was simply that there may be things to learn from the
successful commercial vendors on this, I realize now that it would have
been prudent to just keep my mouth shut :)
