After spending some time today converting your script to simply a s
script executed by a shell script for each file and then trying to
compile the results I've noticed there are many dependencies on where x has to do with GetFields, PutFields, and other
serialization related stuff.  Based on this I do not think it will be
possible for us to release the collections classes in a way which is
meaningful to other users of Sun's 1.1.8 work.  If there is a reason
to finish this so it can be used on another 1.2 VM/class library other
than Classpath let me know.

Thanks for all the work Jochen and I'm sorry this took me so long to
get to.
