FW(little)IW, I'm skeptical of this.  FreeBSD was not, and is not, the
only OS not to have JDK 1.2 available currently.

I currently maintain the Tomcat (and JServ, and Cocoon) package
distributions for the NetBSD operating system.  While we certainly hope
to benefit from BSDI's actions as a go-between for Sun and the BSD
community, people wishing to distribute JVM's for a number of other OS
environments are still stuck with 1.1.8.

In other words, ``Sun Opened JDK 1.2 for FreeBSD'' is still a far cry
from ``Sun Opened JDK 1.2'', just as ``Sun Opened JDK 1.2 for Linux''
was...
