Using OSG for Classpath

I am very impressed with the Classpath libraries. It is an impressive
feat to get so much done.

I have, however, a request. The current classpath is becoming quite big
and will contain too much for smaller environments. I am trying to get
jamvm and classpath to work on an NSLU2 and it means I have to twiddle
a lot. So I have some questions:

1/ Could classpath be split up in multiple, independent projects? I.e.
   every javax should have its own JAR.

2/ Could you use the OSGi modularization headers for JAR files to
   make these libraries deployable? These headers allow you to keep
   implementation code protected from other JARs when running on an
   OSGi system. These headers are ignored for other systems.
   FYI, OSGi is used in Eclipse, Apache and in many commercial
   projects. I would be more than willing to help to get these headers
   in place.

3/ Cross dependencies should be absolutely minimized. I noticed
   java.nio was used in several implementation packages.

Kind regards,

   Peter Kriens
