Sounds good.

There's some info here:

    http://gcc.gnu.org/java/gcj-3.1-status.html

This applies to 3.1, but 3.2 is really just 3.1 with a few tweaks.

For the core java.* packages (excluding AWT), we're at 93% coverage
for 1.4.  I ran japicompat a couple weeks ago...

For javax.* the situation is much worse :-(
Nic will step in here... :-)

Good idea.
