Michael, no one has said NOTHING needs to change.  Everyone is saying this thing 
you think is the most important is not something that can be trivially changed 
because it involves the type system associated with a publicly consumed API.

On top of that, we're disputing your statement that the package name of Entry is 
wrong.  We've told you that Entry is reused in different parts of the Jini 
system.  I tried to illustrate the utilitarian nature of this class by comparing 
it to String, which you said was not a good comparison.

I'm not sure how to communicate any more information in your direction because 
now you are clearly holding up a shield and tossing fireballs over the wall 
feeling assaulted I guess.  So with all the condescending comments you are 
pitching at us, how would suppose we wouldn't be defensive for no other reason 
than that alone, let alone the true technical issues which are not immaterial.
