Thanks for explaining.

Sounds good, I may not have time to do it until next week, but should
then be able to do it quickly if you give me exact instructions.  The
java code have not been modified in a quite a while, so perhaps it is

we could look into it though.

Btw, please keep help-libidn in the cc to archive the discussion and
make other people aware of this contribution.
