I wasn't clear here.  The high-level capabilities of both Java and
CAML are useful in writing such systems.  Too bad Java/the JVM's
behavioural attributes make it totally unsuited.  Ah, well.

For those who don't understand what I mean, take a look at
InstallShield MultiPlatform.  Also look at "javac" itself.  And "jar".
Ask yourself how such simple problems have admitted such awful
solutions in Java.  Marvel at the foolishness of the creators of these
artifacts.
