One thing to add to David's mail. We have included a simple dependency 
analyzer that runs in the "profiles" build to catch changes that 
introduce new or undesirable dependencies, say someone mistakenly adds a 
dependency on AWT to one of the core classes. That should help catch 
issues quickly and also help keep the profile definitions up to date as 
jdk8 evolves.
