I believe that you could *at least* read my mails in full and not cut 
them at a place that make me look like a moron.
I'm perfectly aware of java's actual needs for bison, and I did mention
it in the fragment you so conveniently cut.

Note that changing BISON to something else is simply a matter of supplying
a site x-fragment, which is not yet forbidden, thanks god.
