See how today we have many high-quality network servers, database 
drivers, IDEs, compilers, interpreters and other kinds of system-level 
software written in Java. If Java has proven to be more productive for  
these software, why not for the VM itself? There's no reason we should 
still be dealing with zero-bytes at the end of strings and size of 
buffers at every string copy.
