	Oooh - I missed that :-)

	It looks like it does an identical job - at least my diff -u before and
after having SOLAR_JAVA enabled shows exactly no difference in the
output :-)

	Andreas - it would be great to get a patch to kill the java config
fragment merging tool, and use this python one un-conditionally instead.

	Should be just a matter of hacking:


	And binning the FCFGMerge.jar compilation / source code etc.

	Any chance you could look at that as an easy-hack-alike ? :-)
