The launcher's machine dependent code needs refactoring, the 
file is peppered with conditional compilation statements making
it very hard to follow the flow.

EVALUATION Yes, needs to be done, breakout the macosx code out of java_md.(c,h} and create separate files such as java_macosx.{c,h}, and compile these conditionally.
