***DISCLAIMER***: _These notes are from the defunct k8 project which_
_precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26!_
_The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such_
_all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no_
_longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it._

Did a bunch of work, I need a LockedCollections which is similar to
Collections, but one where the access is locked to a specific object. Since
PackageInfo returns the actual used lists, they are internally synchronized.
However, the returned list would not be using the locking object. Therefor a
LockedCollection is required so that they cannot be modified. However, it
might be best to use LockedCollections internally. There is the Lock interface
in the concurrent lock package, however using synchronized should be enough in
this case.

Another class that would be handy is a checked collections class which similar
to collections has a callback which verifies whether the associated element is
legal for addition into the List, Map, or Set. There is already the checked
stuff in Collections, however it is slightly weak so I instead will need one
that operates using a callback rather than a static type. So perhaps a

## 04:10

All of this package code seems a bit rather paranoid, but that is a good thing
because then values are expected to be sane usually.

## 06:06

To simplify operation and not constantly implement new classes, for the
toJson() method I cheat and add it to an array, then extract that singular
array value. It works and saves me from implementing more classes or depending
on my only implementation.

## 06:19

I should add a special TODO exception that when thrown, in the constructor it
just prints the current stack and calls a fatal System.exit(), this way they
will never be caught and it will always be fatal. This can work to my
advantage to implement code in the event certain exceptions are caught
magically. This would be much safer, because currently I use InternalError, of
which is catchable.

## 07:04

Code feels a bit nicer with that exception now, provided it builds OK.

## 07:13

Required some minor fixing, and it looks like GIJ does not support getting the
stack trace for the current thread. That seems a bit poor however, I could
always attempt doing it from a Throwable instead.

## 08:32

I will be able to start work on my compiler soon, I will need a good API
however so that way it works well and it is not really ugly.

## 12:13

Made a bunch of changes today, need to figure out tomorrow the best way to
implement RFCJsonISR (for auto-detected encoding when reading). Also feels
like I did not change much at all. Also just beefed up the mkfossil.sh script
to be a bit more verbose, to see which stage it is at.

## 12:17

Before I forget, I will need to split off the package building code so that
automatic dependency generation could be used.

## 12:34

Oh wow, Hairball's Main does not even use TemplateMain.

## 13:29

Been cleaning and beefing up the fossil script to make more friendly and safer
repository files (such as crippling the ability of anonymous to create tickets
and such). I thought about setting an image for the top of the repository
page, but I would rather not have a PNG, therefor I will instead opt for the
data URI, it is supported on most newer browsers. Now I just need to make an
icon of sorts. I can probably make an icon later, as I doubt I can draw one
right now. Thought about a pixelated cat of sorts.
