Jcov JVMPI agent source code is currently a part of JDK workspace, which means
that it is built and shipped together with JDK, so integration of any
bug fixes and new features can be done only when JDK schedule allows.
This is very inconvenient for Jcov users - they have to wait for
a new JDK build to get fresh Jcov agent. Besides, JDK integration rules
are too heavy for Jcov agent. It is required, for example, to build
entire JDK workspace on at least 2 platforms to integrate agent code,
whereas Jcov agent does not use/depend on any JDK code except for
few standard header files shipped with JDK distribution.
So, I would like to propose to move Jcov agent code out of the JDK workspace.
