I actually have no idea about any of these issues.  However I would
note that the Java bindings do need some attention:


Patches welcome!

In addition to the things proposed in that bz, I think it would also be great to:
1. Support Java streams in addition to files - talked about it a bit with Pino at FOSDEM
2. Have a configuration file that points to the location of the JNI part at a known place (that the application can use)

The context of this is the integration with muCommander.
There's already an on-going initiative to leverage this functionality (!)

I'll try to address some of those things.
