OK, I share this concern (though I don't think this might happen anytime 
soon). Yet this is a possibility. But I totally fail to see why, in this 
case, JNI and native code might help us out... we would probably just 
give up and start working in a salt mine (or in Redmond, which is almost 
the same), JNI or not :)

Or am I missing something?
