There is no Java source code per se, because I didn't write any (except
the initializer All the JNI wrapper classes are
machine-generated with SWIG ( The "heart" of jgsl is a
Python script that parses GSL's header files and generates appropriate
input files to SWIG.

But I suppose I could include the machine-generated JNI files in the
next release, with the understanding that these source files are the
first thing to be deleted when running `make clean'. I'll try to have
the next release in a couple of weeks, and to have this release include
the Linear Algebra (gsl_linalg.h) stuff.
