Getting JNLP to work. With OpenJDK, all I get is
netx: Spec version not supported (supports 1.0)

I also tried various other packages that are supposed to provide
JNLP, with little more success.

This is on Ubuntu, a happy mixture of hardy (8.04), intrepid (8.10),
and karmic (9.10).

I didn't ask on the forum yet because I thought doing that while I
was pissed off at having to jump through all those hoops in the
first place wouldn't be such a good moment for trying to phrase a
polite question :)

Probably 8 layers here. We haven't gotten to the layout yet, but
I'd rather not have to find out how we fare entirely with manual
routing :)
