I'm not sure a gigantic java bloodfest is preferable.  Android is, if
anything, more Red Hat than Red Hat, with the added disadvantage that
half the system services are implemented in a badly-envisioned million-
daemon dystopia.  The android development world is a copy-paste
nightmare of Biblical proportions.  It's bad enough that RHELisms have
infected the space I live in -- when they start distributing HPC
software in .apk packages I'm checking out.
