Its a bit hard to do that I think. There are no doubt some parts of
Classpath that are not complete (eg AWT) even to the JDK 1.1 spec, while
others (eg Collections) are complete through to 1.3 or maybe even 1.4. The
extent to which different packages, even if API-complete, are tested and
debugged also varies substantially. Also, the JDK/J2SE releases are growing
very large these days and its doubtful that we'd be able to implement
everything thats in them in the forseeable future.
