Derek is correct. Another downside, though, is that VAJ's formatting of
the code isn't very good. As I recall, it removes all blank lines and
the indentation is poor. So, people are always tempted to reformat. We
migrated away from VAJ before the new version came out - the one
supporting JDK1.2. I think this version must be out by now. Perhaps the
formating has improved.

If VAJ's reformatting is minimal after the first pass, checking
out once and back in could mostly avoid this problem.
