I have a problem compiling htmllib with jython2.2a1. Compiling any
other module works fine and compiling the same module with ython2.1
works fine. Did anyone else experience this problem with jython2.2a1?

I have not looked too closely at jythonc myself, but my understanding is  that  it is pretty much not going to work as it is currently implemented -- jythonc currently turns everything into a java file first and then compiles those files.  Interpreted jython compiles directly into class files with no intermediate java files.  One major problem with the jythonc approach is that it is difficult to have a decent generator implementation without a goto -- which java source lacks (and class files have).  One of the goals of a release will (hopefully) be a compiler that works in both cases.
