  So? When any kind of 'oops' or malfunction or vulnerability happens in important
  (and often non-important) linux apps/libs/kernel/whatever, doesn't someone who
  works on that particular 'whatever' get on it as soon as possible and have a 'fix'
  out - as soon as possible? I've seen it happen for the past 13 years. How can the
  Java team fixing things as quickly and as often as necessary be such a wrong thing
  to be derided?
