Yes, I've been wondering about this.  Audrius, are you working on
re-implementing these non-free interfaces?  That would probably be the
best place to start on Classpath's implementation.  Then maybe we can
get JacORB dual-licensed LGPL/GPL+exception and import it into Classpath

Since JacORB is already very mature and widely-used it would be a shame
to duplicate all that effort in Classpath, just for licensing reasons.
