Sure, there could be a lot of great things Sun could have done in the past 10 years to advance the state of the art in that area. They've made it clear that they won't open up their implemetation, come what may, though, for whatever reasons they have. It's their code, so it's their problem. ;)
So the solution for the rest of us is to write a better implementation that removes the need to deal with the bizarre problems of the proprietary one. Worked for gcc, Linux, and a bunch of other things. It will work again, it just takes a bit of time to get done, like any good thing.
