At this point I think I'd prefer to see a "gnujaxp.jar" shipped as
one of the set of jars that get used.

In general, I think separate jarfiles for separate components
is the way to go.  (Another jarfile for JSP?)

I sure hope so ... ;-)

We'll have to hit versioning issues too.  It's going to become
important to say "release NN has problem MM".

By the way -- I grabbed the name "gnujaxp.jar" out of thin air;
it seemed reasonable and appropriate.   If anyone has issues
with that name, please speak up soon.

Heh ... ;-)

It helps to have a couple Free Software test suites to rely on,
even turning up bugs in GCJ 3.0 (some fixed, some not).
I'll claim much credit, but not for creating the DOM suite.

I'm not sure such tests exist for JSP, and such things DO
make life a lot easier for developers.
