Thank you for your interest and contribution.

I've committed your first patch so the JAPI results are already
improving.  I've made a set for just the javax.imageio packages and kept
a copy of the results from before you started contributing.  I'll update
it periodically.  See:


Looking at the sun50 and sun60 results shows that there are two new
methods in java6 that are also missing:


It would be good to implement those for the java6 branch too.
