Excuse me if I'm missing something, but wouldn't it be necessary to 
implement parts of the VM or the class library in native code anyway? 
I'm thinking about code to access e.g. resources like I/O devices, sound 
etc.? Or is this discussion C vs Java restricted to the bytecode 
executing part of the VM?
