   Hey, Sun already sponsors the Sun Freeware web site -- wouldn't it be
cool if they also let him (and his mirrors!) distribute signed patch
clusters or individual signed patches? The signature could be confirmed
with one listed on sun.com, and the mirrors would use a static path to
the download (instead of the common redirects that someone mentioned,
which are a pain) so we could all grab them there.
   *sigh* What a crazy dream...
