My understanding is that Paul wants to write a wrapper class which
looks like a CNI jarray but acts like a JNI array.

The current plan is to use Paul's wrapper class idea.
Changing g++ would work, but there is nobody to do the actual
implementation. (And, in my estimation, it is unlikely that the g++
maintainers would accept the patch in any case.)
