Maybe an informal survey is required but the normal way of working has 
traditionally been to use the exploded classes (or jdk/classes as it is 
now). Prior to the new build then it was rare for most of us to build 
images, we rarely needed them. The images target is significantly faster 
with the new build and maybe the intention is that we are supposed to 
use that but I think we do need to continue to be able to run+debug with 
the exploded classes. Once the JCE jurisdiction policy files are copied 
into the build output jdk tree then I assume that it makes it possible 
to run more tests. I realize it might not be everything that folks 
working with signed providers might need but I would think that only a 
few people need to actually use signed providers in their local environment.
