That's a GOOD thing :-)

Let's use it for a while, then take a snapshot and use it for our
static list, maybe.

Go ahead and retarget those to 1.0, then, please.

I agree that Sun's Java runtime is probably something we should support for 1.0.
But Java isn't "just fine" under Wine; I've run into installers that
fail because they
crash inside Sun's JVM on Wine. To say we really support Java, though,
probably means figuring out how to run the Mauve regression tests
under wine. If someone wants to do that, please do!
If someone wants to start putting effort into getting .NET,
or for that matter Mono, up and running, great. But personally,
I'd be just fine with making .NET support a 1.1 feature.
