There's been some discussion about trying to make our peers conform to
the JDK specification, even though it is undocumented. It turns out
there are other peer implementations around, it might be useful to let
them work with our implementation.
Most of the peer interfaces can be reverse engineered pretty easily,
so this is at least mostly possible.
What do you think about the compatibility idea?
Would it be hard to fix these bugs without adding a new method here?
If so, let's just go ahead. The patch itself is fine.
