Sounds good to me.  As far as I know only libgcj uses the raw and
closure APIs (you mentioned Mozilla; does it use this?).  So we should
feel free to change them to suit us.

Well, they were based on information available at the time (i.e.,
little).  We've learned stuff since then.  So no harm done.
