I'll try and make this more prominent on the OSGeo4W page.  Currently
it is buried pretty deep.

Sweet!  I'm interested in how the Java runtime environment will be
handled.  Will you try to use the system Java?  Or provide your own
that just sits in the OSGeo4W tree?  Will you try and install the
OSGeo4W Java in such a way that it becomes available as the system
Java environment?

I'd be pleased to lend a hand and answer questions where I can.  I'm
also interested in getting Java MapScript and GDAL/OGR Java bindings
working once you have the basic Java runtime rules worked out.
