More on the conformance front, I think Sun has been careful in participating in 
the Jakarta front to separate rights to the "Java Certified" or "100% Pure Java" 
trademarks from the rights to distribute and make modified versions of stuff 
they've contributed to Jakarta. In other words, if you make a modified version 
of Tomcat, you can't call it "Java Certified" unless you actually get it certified.
