Yes, you are right. This is small enough to be "obvious", but it would
be nice to have paperwork on file with the FSF stating your willingness
to contribute (larger) patches in the future. I'll send you the request
form.

BTW. libgcj has a slightly different implementation of
Class.getSimpleName() that might be worth merging with the classpath
version: http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/java-patches/2006-q3/msg00192.html

Cheers,
