Wll yes, I think that rumours of the Death of Java (and of Sun for that 
matter) are somewhat exaggerated, and in the end it'll be film at 11. But the 
"should Java be open source" debate precedes the current flap, see e.g. 
Maybe the Open Source Java Community (i.e. we) could choose this time to 
state what _we_ think are the real issues ...
