The rumours of my GCJ superpowers are greatly exagerated. I would
be completely helpless in even trying GCJ, except for Ranjits 
MinGW postings. Kudos! My attempts at compiling GCJ from source
failed pitifully.

I'll kick my efforts with trying to pull out the java.util.prefs stuff
from Classpath, file a couple of bugreports and see how that goes.
