A significant use case is for "javac as a component", more than just 
"javac for a one-shot compilation". That's the reason we changed from a 
single class to an interface with different implementation 
characteristics. I would not want to lose that aspect .... but it is 
reasonable to explore alternative implementations for different use cases.
