Indeed, IcedTea already downloads a tarball of the HSX repository and
deletes the OpenJDK6 version.  Having to sync between HSX and OpenJDK6
just seems to create unnecessary work.

The big question is what would be in the build drops -- would these be
a complete amalgamation of all the tarballs from their various sources
or just upstream OpenJDK6 (i.e. jdk and langtools by the sound of it)?
