could you please give me an idea why it would be useful to replace a
language alien to the core with another alien? I guessed the replacement
of Java is to eliminate integration issues. If that's not the case...
whats the problem with Java? Just the "is a appropriate JRE / JDK
installed" issue?. Sorry, perhaps a noob question.

Thanks, regards
