Thanks for doing that btw. Obviously GNU Classpath is just the core
libraries which are used as one of the building blocks for a full
development environment that might or might not pass the TCK as you
pointed out in your application. But we are positive that we want to
help you in any way to pass the TCK. And we will happily accept any code
changes that you think are necessary. Because I think we all feel that
clear interfaces, compatibility and unit testing are a good thing for
our users (in addition to the four freedoms).

I think badges are very useful actually. But I also think that users
should have the freedom to verify such claims. That is why Mauve is so
important. And why it is so good to see that Mauve is growing so fastly
these days.
