I complete forgot to post this.  I build a autoconf (GNU configure) version
of Jigsaw 1.0beta1 with some minor patches:

1. The acceptUnload() method is controlled by an attribute called 
   "unloadable" which takes a boolean value.

2. The root resource has been marked "unloadable" (a configuration issue).

3. Directory resources have been made "unloadable" (a configuration issue).

1 & 2 fix a problem with the current version in that the root resource can
get unloaded causing the server not to be able to service *any* request.

The third change ensures the direct ancestry (child-to-parent) is not
unloaded.  Unloading the ancestry for an active resource can cause problems
if the resource "explores" the server.

I view these as necessary fixes to Jigsaw that should not be necessary in
2.0 (as far as I know).  

I have not applied any other patches to this distribution.

In addition, only the "code in use" in included in this distribution.  In the
original distribution there were some packages that were not uses and some
would not even compile.  I have trimmed these out.

This code base is what my company and one of out clients is current using in
shipping products.

Please let me know if you have any problems.
