Was that the announcement you were thinking of?  If it was, I'm still
not sure what part of it you are referring to.  If not, maybe you can
provide a pointer to it, or who posted it.

This isn't a big deal for me, as I don't use Java currently, so no
rush to solve from my standpoint, but I was just wondering.
