Afaik Trees is only used for JDK 8 (and perhaps 7 and 6?) at this
point and was introduced to replace the forest extension, I'm not sure
if it's worth spending resources to migrate this to python 3 given
there's a script in the jdk sources that does most of the same.
I've never used defpath so I'm not sure what it does. The hook is
rather important, since it's used to check patches against their bug
id and also for style issues, I believe the Skara group has that
ported to the Git workflow already.
