I pulled out the o.a.t.a.util.java16 package as it wasn't used, the
hasfreespace condition wasn't pulled as it compiled and ran on both
vm's I have (although this isn't an extensive test by any measure).
Also the condition isn't documented and so no users will know about it
anyway (and hence won't be used) - again this isn't great, but it does
cover us a little in that it's an undocumented feature and shouldn't
be used until it is documented.

Peter is absolutely correct, the problems were solely due to trying to
cram in a feature at the last minute - as was pointed out by other
people.  I wasn't aware (although perhaps I should have been) that
today was release day, and having seen the addition of the
javax.scripting and other stuff I thought I could get something in
before the deadline.

Profuse apologies all round.
