On an unrelated note, would it make sense to create infrastructure for
the porting projects inside OpenJDK? I am wondering if we shouldn't
create an official 'porters' group, with projects for ports to *BSD, etc.

While Sun may not be interested in merging in all such ports into the
main OpenJDK tree, it could be useful to have the patch sets maintained
centrally as part of the OpenJDK infrastructure. The distributed mercurial
setup could give us that liberty, I think.
