It would be really helpful if someone could profile GCJ, so we could
have an understanding of where the time is going.  Is it slow because
it needs to do a lot of work, or are there places where we're doing
something dumb (like an N^2 algorithm) that can be relatively
easily fixed?

This is another possible beginner project.
