no, that was absolutely not the point with it. :-)
This was at an very early stage of the Linux port
when I did not yet even know you. I think it was the
first week of January or so.

I just wanted to do something useful, and at this
time, I did not know exactly what this could be.
I think, Self on Java is a good idea (especially
on Hotspot :-), albeit much more difficult to get
the OS environment up again), and I wanted to stay
on focus within the Self effort.

To state my point more clearly: We need more focus
and do one step after another, helping each other
and not every single person to do just her single
project only.
