I believe the technical term is "exit strategy". I agree with you
that the VNTS-JSRs strategy is the best for now, but also with Andy's
assessment that this strategy is basically ineffective. Either other
participants of the JCP put pressure on Sun, or this situation will
not be resolved at all.
It's taken two months of discussion to get to this temporary strategy,
it will take even longer to get to the next one. Sun will have ample
time to reconsider, or not. If they do, everything's peachy. So the
discussion should focus on the other case.
