Download it!! Mozzie everywhere!

But they are of no use to us then, except for the toplevel containers..
I will look at the java-gtk api at the end of the week.

Uhuh. Trouble is that I just checked out CVS for the first time since
weeks and make seems to be recursing infinitely and takes about 17 GB(!)
of space, I noticed because it ld exited with an error that there was no
space left.

I checked it from cvs too. So much too read..

Have you tried it? I haven't. (Couldn't get it work with less than a
half hour)

I'll recheck the 3.3 release out and try to compile it.

I must be insane to even try doing this, but I will. 

Going back to work now, I'll check out if I can get both classpath and
gcj conjure up a JFrame (I didn't even get that far last time I tried)
