Ok, it looks good to me. I went through your checklist for the src, jre, 
jdk and hdk distributables, plus some of the jar files contained in each 
of them, and found the right readme, notice and license files as far as 
I could see. The contents of those files also looked correct to me. Im 
+1 to committing this patch - thanks Mark!
