One option, if you can afford the size and your target has a filesystem,
may be keeping the interpreter and minimizing the number of classes
compiled in.  Classes that are not commonly used could then be
interpreted.  You'd probably need to link all classes with native
methods, but there really aren't that many.

You'd still need to decouple things a bit, maybe using weak references
like Bryce suggested.
