I appreciate the effort you put into working out a way to deal with the
mess that is java. It does not conflict with the fact that I think the
current state of java-common is imperfect, and indeed is, IMO,

I'm sorry I hurt your feelings, but realize that I'm merely stating that
one particular package is bad, and it needs our attention. Please do not
take it personally.

Disregard what particular language I used -- I should add that my
temperament in this particular case was in no small part due to my
dislike of java.

Again I apologize for the harm I did not intend.
