Major changes. Big step towards multiple classloader support. The starter app now depends on classpath.dll and creates it's own (trivial) custom classloader (derived from URLClassLoader), so it now supports loading classes from zips and jars (courtesy of Classpath's URLClassLoader).

Note that this means that Java code that uses a custom classloader to dynamically generate classes (using ClassLoader.defineClass) should work now.

There is still some work to be done, because all the classloaders still shares a single namespace. Also, exception (and general error) handling isn't quite ready yet, either.

Updated the binaries and source snaphots.

I apologize for the lameness of this, but the comment spam was driving me nuts. In order to be able to post a comment, you need to answer a simple question. Hopefully this question is easy enough not to annoy serious commenters, but hard enough to keep the spammers away.

Anti-Spam Question: What method on java.lang.System returns an object's original hashcode (i.e. the one that would be returned by java.lang.Object.hashCode() if it wasn't overridden)? (case is significant)
