Yes, there may be legal issues we don't want to get into.

Perhaps a Java API similar to the scsh (Scheme Shell),
which provides a nice wrapper around Posix APIs.

package gnu.posix;
public class Process
   static int fork ();
   static void exec(String[] args);

public class File
   static int open(String name, int mode);

One might think someone already has done something similar.
