There is also a good chance that unmodified JPackage applications
will work just fine. GCJ 4.1's lazy loading and the fast improving
Swing implementation mean that it is rapidly becoming the case that
the only applications that will not work are those that use
undocumented and unsupported calls to Sun-specific classes.
