Unfortunately, we can't ship gcjwebplugin and gcjappletviewer with
Fedora Core 3 in their current form because they haven't been audited
for security.  However, I'm wondering if there is some way of using
existing security infrastructure to limit gcjappletviewer's
capabilities.  That way we could at least ship a feature-limited version
so that people could experiment with trusted applets.

Yes, this seems doable.  I'll push to have the GTK peers included in the
next Fedora release.
