I was going to say much the same; this story is made even better by the
fact that GCJ 4.0.2 (AFAIK) is based on a version of the Classpath code
largely from early this year (if not last).  In theory, our current
performance should be even better.

On a related note, what are the plans for gcjx?  At present, gcj seems
to suffer from the slower development cycles of the C and C++ compilers.
Will gcjx go the same way, or will it stay more in line with the
bimonthly Classpath releases?

Good work everyone,
Andrew :)
