Point taken.  But my comment referred to the impact of adding an
explicit super.finalize() call to a non-trivial finalizer ... in the
context of a proposed change to gcj and/or jikes to add a compilation
warning for missing finalizer chaining calls.

Anyway, I've concluded that the detail we were arguing about is a "line
ball", and that it doesn't really make much difference either way which
way the change works.
