If people update it themselves, manually, then they avoid an  
additional changeset modifying
their files. So it's still ok for people to manually update the second  
But it can be considered optional again.

It's a tricky thing to fully automate. Ideally, someone needs to  
eyeball the changes.

I'll try and run the script over openjdk7 next week, before 2011.

Different problem, leaving it to the sustaining team.

Yeah. It's not quite automated yet, I'll work with RE on some kind of  
monthly schedule,
maybe do it the last day of the month.
