Hello, Neal Gafter !

doesn't support it.
I realize that you are an expert on javac matters, but I think
you are overstating what the spec says. I was in many discussions
on thos topic years ago when it was allowed by javac and the only
compiler that didn't support it was Visual AgeFor Java. There
were people who claimed VAJ was non-compliant because it didn't
The spec does not forbid importing from the unnamed package, but
does allow a host to not support it. A system can support it and
would not be non-compliant as you claimed in another message,
otherwise javac was non-compliant before 1.3.
