In contrast, JEP-95/96 have no implementations.  What is your point?

Are we choosing a JEP based on what is proven and works?  Or are we choosing 
based on discussion and merit?  Pressing JEP-95 and talking about choosing 
what works is a conflicting stance.

Jan's point was to suggest reference implementations as a way of finding 
flaws.  He wrote, "we can see if the issues are real or just theoretical".  I 
believe you even agreed with him.

My point is that Tkabber is enough of a reference implementation, and there 
were no issues raised as a result.
