maybe fast, but not fine.
- Zero is fine to build things, but not to run them,
at least three times slower.
- shark has a lot of memory pressure, and even doesn't
pass the jdk jtreg tests.
- cacao is limited, please try to rebuild the archive
with cacao enabled.
- jamvm is limited, please try to rebuild the archive
with jamvm enabled. compared to cacao, it does have
an active upstream.
a short term solution I did choose for Ubuntu is to stick with 6b18 on armel,
and to proceed with openjdk development on other architecures. If somebody
wants to implement this for Debian, please join the openjdk team. I won't do
any uploads to unstable besides updates to the current IcedTea 1.8.x release series.
