Point (1) was interesting in that it might be easier to test code
against a more reliable VM, making it much easier to just assume the
problem is in gcp (GNU Classpath) until proven otherwise.  I'm
somewhat eager to take the VM out of the picture when trying to debug
the 98% (swag) of gcp which doesn't have a VM specific hook.

Unlike the article however, I'd prefer to keep CVS code in the current
package name space and look at using a java parser to change the
package names of user defined parts of the tree for testing.  Has
something like this already been written elsewhere?
