This is mainly a problem of OOo's Java policy. They refuse to
incorporate post-Java-1.4 (or 1.3?) code into the main code line. I
choose Java 1.5 with generics and all the funny 1.5 stuff for
development. Therefore, there is currently no much chance to get it
into the standard distribution. And since the transformation is not
yet complete, I don't feel much inclined to back port it.
