Ok.  This still seems to be missing in GNU Classpath (quoteReplacement was
added recently) but it looks trivial to implement.  I'll have a look myself
later today.

Yes, that's because the page only lists releases and there hasn't been one in
a while.  We are on the verge of 0.99; the work is done, but we're currently
stalled on GNU project admin issues in uploading the tarball :-(  I'm working
on merging 0.99 into gcj right now.

It's always a good idea to check the mailing lists of a project before posting.

Ah good!  It just comes across a little offensive to call a project dead when
people are actively working on it :-)

For CNI, you will need gcj.  Keep an eye on java-patches@gcc.gnu.org for the latest
Classpath code being merged in.
