Implementing true support for JAR files in ABCL has taken quite a bit 
more time and effort as can be seen by the rejection of my mail of few 
minutes ago to the list for being too long.

I've posted my [patches with explanation to the web][1], as I am not 
sure when or if the moderator will let the original message through.

About the only disadvantage for the current patch is that I had to 
remove the use of ZipCache for entries as I was developing as it didn't 
make much sense.  I haven't really noticed too much of a time difference 
for loading or compiling ABCL.

Comments?  Once I get things tested under Windows, and play around with 
the loading from http support, I intend to commit to trunk.

is nothing to compare to it now."
