Nope.  When I initially was doing this we were still avoiding sun.*.
But I think we're going to have to break that tradition for
annotations (i.e., please submit your serialization thing).

The other issues is not letting user code reference the new APIs,
which AIUI using gnu.classpath.* achieves.  But, that solution could
be extended without much trouble.
