yes, they are short examples. in fact, I was impressed with how little 
code was needed to produce a rock solid service.

the migration to j.u.c is based on the advertized solidity. dl.u.c is 
"production quality" whereas j.u.c is "buyer beware". now there may not 
be much difference in fact, but since we're using this in product, we 
have a more convincing story with dl.u.c. meaning we may not go to j.u.c 
until JSR166 is passed.
