There's always the licensing problems...

But beyond that, nobody knows.  It depends on how much kaffe's jit
assumes about object layout, ABI, exception handling, etc.

On the libgcj end, right now things aren't all that modular.
Generalizing the internal interfaces to make it easier to plug in a
jit has been on my to-do list for a long time.
