Yeah, it is awesome.  I wish I'd kept all those old comparisons in
cvs, so I could make a chart showing the growth.

There is JacORB and OpenORB.  They have some license trouble, but
nothing really fatal.  We couldn't put them in classpath though.

I've considered running my nightly comparison including JacORB, but
haven't set that up yet.  I don't think it is fully building with free
tools... Anthony has looked into this a bit.

I thought Michael Koch had some of this... ?

There is a new flag for enum (and I thought another one, but I
forget), new signatures for generics, and also additions for
attributes.  These would all need to be included in the comparison, I

We definitely need someone to work on this actively... it will help
the generics effort along.  Also perhaps we could fix the one or two
bugs in japi (I don't know what they are exactly, but I think some of
the differences on that page are spurious...)
