This looks very good.
Just one remark: In the definition of java.vendor.version, the following
statement is made:
"Its value has the same format as the |java.version| system property,
I would recommend removing that, and leaving it entirely up to the
implementor to provide a generic string. That would solve e.g. Matthias
Klose's issue of getting a proper Ubuntu version string into OpenJDK.
Also, it might be more sane to leave this property empty if no value is
given, rather than to assign it to the same value as java.version. It's
just redundant and will force all users to compare java.vendor.version
to java.version before deciding to display anything, instead of simply
checking if it's non-empty.
