if it were only a matter of which version of jdk one uses, i'd say that you were
proposing a solution that would have a limited lifetime. [as an aside -
monitoring features could be a strong motivation for people to upgrade, which
would be a good thing ;-) ]

but having a solution independent of any one VM (sun/ibm/whoever) or version is
the best.

i do have a cold, but that is no excuse for being too fast of fingers and too
slow  of brain.

i've been lurking the list for a while now and just itching to find some place
where i might be able to help. so if you find you could use a little help,
please drop me a note.
