Ooh, I feel like I'm on a roll today.  Not that anything I've been rambling
on about in my posts for the last few days will make it into 1.3 (or maybe
even 1.3A ;), but here's another one for debate.

A Java recognition module for the exec() family.

While plowing through the (sad to say it, but disorganized) Linux kernel, I
did notice that it has a stub routine capable of recognizing Java classes
and running a Java interpreter when a class is encountered.  This seems like
an utterly trivial thing to add;, with only two sysctl configurable options
needed (pathname of Java interpreter and of Applet viewer).  Opinions?
