Subject Re: System Properties and Env vars

One thing to bear in mind is that the implementation of Hashtable (the
superclass of Properties) can vary between JVMs. For instance our Java
1.4 and Java 5 versions use private fields with different names. Of
course you can still have code above Kato that says "if table field
exists do this, else if elementData field exists do this etc". But
given how useful access to the system properties is it may be easier
to just add it to Kato?

BTW Dan - is it really possible to have multiple copies of java.lang.System?

Cheers,

Dave
