Hi Mandy

Sorry for late comment. My email client on Nokia E71 keeps crashing. (Hope 
it's good this time).

I'm quite sure there are people out there calling KeyTool the same way. 
Also, I feel a little weird that one tool is treated diffrently from 

Is it possible to leave all current class unchanged, and create new 
packages called (xxx can be keytool, jarsigner, 
policytool), each with a single Xxx class whose main() simply calls

Also, there are 3 Windows-only security tools (kinit, klist, ktab) in Should they be isolated the same way?
