Description
It has been clear from questions on the openjdk lists that people would either like to experiment with the c++ based interpreter or use it to port to new architectures. Since most of the c++ interpreter code was already open sourced we won't be able to control this. So we should get on the bandwagon and help them out by publishing the existing implementation on sparc/x86.
