*bad* link on gcj page


Hi,

On this page, http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/java/, you specify the 
following paragraph:

Compiled applications are linked with the GCJ runtime, libgcj,
which provides the core *class libraries*, a garbage collector, and a 
bytecode
interpreter. libgcj can dynamically load and interpret
class files, resulting in mixed compiled/interpreted applications.

"class libraries" is a hyperlink to the classpath project.  After some 
experimentation, I found
that the classes implemented in the classpath projects are *not* the 
same as those distributed under
libjava (with gcc) - alpha stage, lots of bugs.....

The classpath project classes are *not* ready (i.e. contain lots of bugs).
I could have saved a lot of time knowing this.  Can you make a mention 
of this on this web
page for others?  Simply saying that the classpath project classes are 
*not* the same as those classes under gcc libjava
would be very helpful.
