A boon?  Not at all, Classpath will be (mostly) redundant and will fade 
away, replaced by Sun's runtime.  But as I said elsewhere, that's a good 
outcome if all you are interested in is a good quality free / open 
source runtime to run Java applications on...and I'm not after anything 
more than that.
