Hmmm, well I used to work with the author of JamVM (Rob Lougher) and he's 
one of the brightest guys I know. I think you'll find that the low LOC 
figure is testament to his ability to write lean code rather than an 
indication of how easy it is to knock off a JVM on a wet Sunday afternoon.

BTW has anyone asked Rob about donating JamVM to Harmony? As the (currently) 
sole owner he should have no problem with switching licenses.
