Well...ultimately I think thats for Sun to decide.  They call them
different names and they appear to have a different terms of use, thus
they are different, no?  Do other Apache projects that pass TCKs have
the same restrictions on licensing as using a JCK?  If so, then we have
a really big problem on our hands...if not, then there is a difference?
