the 1.5 that Karl (and thus Les by extension) was the gcj version that
is bundled by Fedora and it's cloudy if not completely disconnected from
the Sun 1.5.x releases and obviously the Sun 1.6 releases. That's what
Les meant by Apples and Oranges (GCJ Java and Sun Java)

The fact remains that Karl is one confused puppy and Les stretches to
make a point that Karl's confusion represents the greater confusion as a
whole which is absurd because Karl represents wrongfulness and confusion
across the board, not just wrt java

I am quite certain that 5 days ago, I suggested that Les be patient but
that hasn't stopped him from trying to score ethereal points, and most
ashamedly, using Karl as proof of how problematic the situation is.
