if we share code, building it into the trinidad JAR is the way to go, I agree.

I am not really thrilled about the shared module. It is hard to debug
(e.g. all the impl_shared generated stuff)

Generally, working on common things together is a good idea.

Just keep in mind, that we should not take a too close look to the RI stuff.
(in fact we also can't copy bits..)
