Summary:  REQUEST: Update to Classpath webpage

Original Submission:  Hi!

Now that a stable version of SableVM has been released, I think it would be 
appropriate to update the web page. Sable VM is now the easiest VM to get 
running with Classpath; specially the JNI libraries. Being an interpreter, 
SableVM allows to debug Classpath much more easily. For example, you can call 
Runtime.getRuntime().traceInstructions(on) and traceMethodCalls(on).  You can 
also use a debugger like DDD to step one by one the execution of each bytecode 
inplementation and inspect the local variables, stack and heap.

As I have already completed all the GNU copyright assignment paper work, 
SableVM's native and class libraries are fully copyrighted by the FSF. I will 
eventually hold a discussion on the mailing-list regarding the best way to 
integrate SableVM's specific changes (which are not many) in Classpath's CVS. 
The main current obstacle is that SableVM passes all the library code through 
automatic code indenters: GNU indent for C code, 'astyle -jbs2' and 'cat -s' 
for Java code. This, of course, inflates raw "diffs" with Classpath's CVS...

I've updated the comment on SableVM slightly.  Perhaps I should include 
verbatim the part of paragraph one starting with "Sable VM is now the 
easiest..."?  Let me know.
