What I mean is that in the absence of a native layer you could use a java 
layer. It would be more heavyweight and less optimal but a good fall back. 
So when you have a native layer you would use that else you could use java 
layer. The main reason is that would allow all features (ie clean restart 
and crash monitoring) but still be able to run on all platforms.
