I think it’s a pretty good idea in several ways. Open Source Java has always struggled a bit with the fact that since the Sun implementation is ‘free as in free beer’, there is less incentive to work on an open source version.

I said as much a year ago so it’s nice to see my idea wasn’t so bad after all.
