My opinion: probably not. However, I just thought of another drawback 
with using Joeq's interpreter, namely you wouldn't be able to debug it 
with a standard Java debugger. The Brakes-like approach doesn't have 
this limitation. In addition, since that approach simply modifies the 
bytecode it would still be optimized by Hotspot and would still 
outperform any scripting language. Torsten, what's the status of your 
work on this?
