Yes, definitely.

I would prefer to see this done as part of the classpath tools
project.  You ("one") could write it in java and use gnu.bytecode or
ASM for the bytecode tweaking.

In that case, wouldn't it be far simpler to talk to Jon Meyer to get Jasmin into Classpath tools?

IMHO, GCJ should be a Free replacement
SDK for the Java programming language and
the JVM. So "gaj" should be a part of GCJ.

For sure, it should be included in the GCJ distribution. This would provide an easy way to write test cases for bytecode-related bugs without having to put class files in CVS. It could be developed as part of classpath-tools and then imported into GCJ, however - ie classpath-tools is the "upstream provider".

Archit Shah's rmic enhancements, which use ASM as the backend, should probably go into classpath-tools, so if this happens it should serve as a precedent both for using ASM and as an "upstream tool" to be imported into GCJ.
