Can we stop this language madness thing, please?

We are *NOT* going to be writing a JVM from scratch, we are open for 

Currently we have two potential candidates:

  - jc (written in C)
  - jikes rvm (written in java)

if you own a JVM written in Pascal or C++ or Lisp or Smalltalk or OCML 
or Perl or Oberon or Prolog or ADA or Eiffel or RPG/3 or COBOL or 
whatever other programming language and you are willing to donate it and 
license it under the Apache License, make your voice heard on the 
language topic, if not, don't!
