Ouch.  Are you really sure that you want to do this?
Sure. They aren't going to run gtk+ on it, promise, but I don't see any reason why:

char c1, c2, c3;

main() {
c1 = c2 + c3;
}

can't work at least as well as the existing compilers for PIC. They don't care if all of java doesn't work. For the above program, it isn't that hard to get gcc to generate and emit code.
